The Benwiskin Centre Community Garden Project is starting on 16th April 2024
Weekly sessions are held on Tuesdays from 10am - 12pm and will run until end of September/early October 2024.

As there is plenty of knowledge between current participants, the group have agreed to work together without a tutor at this time,
but we are seeking funding to assist with employing a Tutor for this project.  Update with progress to follow.

Tasks are discussed between the group and delegated between the group on a weekly basis.

This project provides a great opportunity to:-

• Make new friends whilst learning / improving skills
• Learn to grow fruit and veg from seeds / seedlings
• Includes organic gardening, pesticide free
• Use of polytunnel and outdoor area
• Trying new plant varieties
• Use of seaweed/farm manure as fertiliser
• Seed saving
• Rotation of plant groups to minimise plant disease
• Composting
• Harvesting
• Visits to other local organic gardens
• Cook-up with garden produce at end of season

Further details:-
• Location - The Benwiskin Centre, Ballintrillick, Co. Sligo F91 A389
• Time - 10am - 12pm on Tuesdays
• Duration - Project runs from April to Sept/Oct
• Fees - Minimum €30 for the term but will increase if Tutor employed without support of funding. Details will be confirmed asap.
