Eoin Drinan speaks to MARION KELLY [slight crackle on the phone] from the Harvest festival who explains what will be happening at the festival in Wolfe Tone Square. She speaks about the community growers sharing their skills as well as Dublin Council sharing views on how to conserve water and how to be more “green” space. Running from 11am until 5pm the event has films, talks, presentations and more.
They speak about where in the city the allotments are located, suggesting the website www.dcc.ie is a good resource. It shows 35 gardens throughout Dublin which appear on a map on the website. We hear that some are small, some are very large and there’s an opportunity for anyone to go and see the gardens and see what suits them individually.
They speak about Marian’s involvement in the project “A Goat for Howth”. Set up to graze goats on the gorse in Howth to conserve and preserve other plant life in the area.
