Sustainable Clonakilty Food Group

  • Print

This new sub-committee of Sustainable Clonakilty was formed to support and encourage local food production. The group's 'Grow Your Own Food' initiative focuses on the growing of vegetables, herbs and fruit locally and according to organic and sustainable principles and a first community garden training programme has already been successfully set up in Pairc an Tobair in Rosscarbery. In order to support existing community gardening projects in Clonakilty as well as encourage new community-run, food-producing gardens to be set up, the

'Clonakilty Community Garden Awards' scheme will be presented at a public meeting on Saturday, March 28 at 2pm in O’Donovan’s Hotel.

Interested community groups and individuals are invited to attend and to participate in the initiative. Community gardens can be created and maintained by any group of local people, i.e. schools, colleges, hospitals and care facilities, residents’ associations and other community groups who come together to grow, harvest and enjoy their own produce.
