Serenity Community Garden

Overall view of the area where a bottle greenhouse is built

A small community garden that was initiated in March 2009. The plot is open to all, without any formal organisation to the plantings. Sunflowers tower over fruit bushes, herbs, flowers and vegetables. A composting facility was installed in June 2009. Gardening sessions run on Saturday afternoons and are open to the public.

The Serenity Community Garden exists to provide a garden amenity within Phibsborough, centred at Great Western Villas. The core aims of the community garden project are to provide a garden resource available to all members of the community, a green waste composting facility, an amenity for social development, an amenity for environmental education and the promotion of biodiversity. The project also seeks to increase the pride of place within the neighbourhood and to improve the appearance of the garden and surrounding streets and green spaces.

Location: Great Western Villas, Phibsborough, Dublin 8.
