Finglas Community garden opened in 2006. The site is about 100m long by 5m wide. There are nine annual beds where gardeners grow potatoes, onions, garlic, cabbage and beetroot. The site is on the grounds of a National School. Terefore, it is secure and has access to water and a shed.
The garden, which was extended some years ago, holds one of Dublin’s first forest gardens. Apple, plum, cherry and pear trees grow happily, in the middle of soft-fruit bushes and perennials planted around them.
Location: St. Joseph’s National School, Barry Avenue, Finglas, Dublin 11.
