We at Carlow County Development Partnership are always excited to meet with communities and groups who are working to bring about positive change in their areas. So we are delighted to be associated with the Community Garden at Gleann na Bearu in Bagenalstown.  Over the past few months this group has been meeting  on Wednesday mornings,  working hard, planting seeds and creating a unique greenhouse made out of recycled plastic bottles.

Community Gardens like this one are all about being together, and can have very positive social, economic wellbeing  and environmental impacts on communities. Participants connected with the gardens normally have a better appreciation of their community and get great satisfaction from the work done outdoors.

Carlow County Development Partnership are working in a number of horticulture projects like this, as well as with the Gairdin Beo in Carlow town.
