Great page Deirdre, you can rely on the Kiwis to get it right!  Hei koná rá!

Thank you, Deirdre. There is some very useful info on your community garden's website, thank you for the links :-) I will keep this site updated with everything that's going on, hopefully the project will soon progress visibly.

Hi There, I am originally from Ardee, at the moment I live in New Zealand. Community gardens have become very popular and very successful here. When I lived in Auckland my local community garden was thriving http://www.ranuicommunityhouse.co.nz/community-garden.html

The second link shows some of the events organised and the steps they took to get it started. Its an excellent idea and well worth it.  I look forward to seeing  a fruitful community garden in Ardee when I am in Ireland!

It's like that in most towns across the country i'm afraid. Usually it's a small groups of dedicated people who are spearheading these things. 
If you build it they will come.
Post any events here and we'll share them around.

Thanks, Wayne's WO. Haven't listened to the show yet, but I certainly will. We have a few people on board with the community garden idea, but still not enough. Ardee is a strange town (as locals say, people here are disconnected) and it's not easy to get community engaged. I could talk hours about what I think the reasons of this are, cutting the story short - it is still not that bad yet. Anyway, I will not give up, we will have the community garden sooner or later :-) I would appreciate any help in regards to promotion of future meetings, though.

Fair play Joanna, I'm not to close to Ardee but if there is anything I help with let me know. We have a sustainability show which has just started on Monday nights at 8. Plenty of tips all aspects of sustainable living permaculture and growing veg.
