Carrick-on-Suir Community Fruit Garden

April 28, 2019

I was extremely happy with the community garden project delivered by Greenside Up at Carrick-on-Suir Library. Dee Sewell delivered everything she promised in a friendly and professional manner and with a very short lead time. Dee worked well with the TY boys from CBS Carrick-on-Suir and brought them, step by step, through the entire process of measuring, digging, planting, mulching and constructing raised beds. We all benefitted enormously from the gardening project learning about the advantages of growing your own food, healthy eating, exercise, fresh air and how gardening can be good for your mental health. Thanks Dee.
This project was funded by ‘Healthy Tipperary’.

Dee has given me lots of knowledge and skills to get out and get my garden sorted. Maybe I can be nearly as good as my Dad was. He grew everything have lots of memories of harvesting fruit and veg as a child. Now it’s time for me to create similar memories for my own kids. Thanks for the know how and somewhat shaky confidence. Really looking forward to lots more gardening and harvesting. Thanks again – Verena Butler, Hugginstown
