Baldoyle Racecourse Community Garden

Baldoyle Racecourse Community Garden (BRCG) is a local community garden initiative set up in 2013 by residents of Baldoyle in association with Fingal County Council.

Located beside the wildlife conservation zone at Red Arches, the Coast, the garden has been specially designed in keeping with the natural habitat and with an ethos of ecological guardianship and commitment to organic practices. The aim of this community garden project is to foster self-sufficiency through the rewards of gardening while also encouraging a strong community spirit in the area.

There are currently over forty members or community growers involved, with each individual maintaining their own private raised bed for personal use, but also contributing to the overall upkeep and management of the garden. BRCG has an open gate policy, welcoming visitors and new members (via an application waiting list policy). The four central beds have also been allocated for use by local social, community and youth services and a special outreach officer has been designated to work with these groups. BRCG is a member of An Taisce.
