Tackling Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Breakdown
Developing Sustainable Community Allotments
Groundwork NI, in conjunction with the Department for Social
Development, has organised a series of best practice seminars on
community allotments. These regional seminars will act as a catalyst
for those who are considering developing a community allotment.
The structured seminars will offer those with an interest in community
gardening projects the opportunity to gain a better understanding of
the benefits, challenges and sustainability issues in developing and
maintaining a community based gardening project.
The seminars are as follows:
Belfast: 11 March 2010, 9.15am-4.30pm - Groundwork NI, 63-75 Duncairn
Gardens, Belfast (incorporating a site visit to Walkway Community
Gardens, East Belfast).
Derry: 23 March 2010, 9.15am-4.30pm - Liberty Consortium, The
Playtrail, 15 Racecourse Road, Derry.
Omagh: 24 March 2010, 9.15am-4.30pm; GK House, Lisanelly Heights,
Omagh (incorporating a site visit to Mullaghmore and Castleview
Community Association allotments).
There will be a number of high calibre speakers and contributors for
these regional events, most notably
Pam Warhurst, co-founder of Incredible Edible.
