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.
The garden has 64 beds, either small (4’x14’) or large (6’x14’) that are rented out to members for a small annual fee. Members need to be resident in Baldoyle. There is a communal barbeque and social area, a small potting shed and a storage metal shed. There are compost bays and a wild habitat area.
The garden has recently been extended, providing a shared area for all members. This will accommodate community activities and further growing space. An orchard and soft fruit areas will be established, native trees planted and more wild habitat areas developed.
