Our school is participating in Agri Aware’s Incredible Edibles Programme, growing vegetables and herbs. As part of the programme, on a beautiful sunny Wednesday last, our two fifth classes and their parents were given a wonderful tour of Sean Dún Community Gardens.
Billy Phelan, chairperson of the Community Gardens Project, told the girls all about the allotments and the plants being grown there. They learned about the importance of bees in pollinating plants. Many were pleasantly surprised at being able to taste wild garlic flowers. Before departing the gardens , children and parents got to plant a flower in a pot to take home and were given good advice on how to care for the plant. Our thanks to Billy and his fellow gardeners for making the visit so Sean Dún Community Gardens so enjoyable for all.
