Most of the plot is now divided into mini-plots, with individuals each taking responsibility for a numbered mini-plot. 'Garden together' events, where as many members as possible come along are posted on the website regularly. Large tools are provided but please bring your own small trowel, fork and gloves. If you are interested in having a mini-plot, please register on the website and post a comment with your enquiry.

Looks like there will be a couple of plots free on the main site, one for you, Barbara, if you would like it, and one for you, Emily. I'm just waiting to see if anyone else gets back to me. Is anyone else in the playground area wanting to come onto the main site if possible? Best, Maggie

Hi Maggie,

thank you for your reply, it’s not such big deal for me as I was planning to plant new ones when the weather improves anyway, but it would of course be good that this area is better protected, especially once we have planted the new ones in a few weeks! At the same time, it is important it is easy for us to access. At the moment, it is difficult to lift those big barriers when I go with my young children. They are not very pretty either... maybe a smaller barrier with a lock like a lock for a bike? If people want to jump above, they ll be able to jump anyway unless it’s very high but then that won’t be pretty and it will be very expensive... something like the tennis entrance I guess is very expensive. Difficult situation... not sure what the solution is!

Further email from Mick Guerin:

Hi Maggie


We have had teenagers climbing over the fence after dark. They have been leaving a lot of broken glass etc. for the staff to clean up every morning, unfortunately they have now chosen to pick on the planter. We will find a solution.


Thanks Mick.

Hi again, Barbara. See Mick's reply below... 

So sorry you lost your plants. Can we help with seeds or by dividing clumps of herbs? Maggie

Hi Maggie 

I am afraid that the plants were pulled out by vandals. We will have to review how we can allow access without allowing the public to get in to this area.


Thanks Mick.

Thanks to Nilufer and Mark for their generous offers to give up space. I think you can keep your whole plot Nilufer as things stand.

Thanks also to Colm, Kate, Kirsty, Helene, Kim, Tiffany, Helen and Barbara for letting me know you want to continue.

Can remaining plot-holders please let me know as soon as possible if you want/are in a position to continue, otherwise I don't know whether or not to reallocate your plots!

Thanks, Maggie

Hi Colm,

Do you know where your plot is? It's the long strip next to the outdoor seating area at the back of the cafe. Nobody has done much yet because of the weather. If you want to get started you can dig it over. I can meet you in the Park - I am there most Sundays - and show you where the tools are in the shed and how to get access. Otherwise, I will organise a 'Garden Together' when the weather improves a bit. The date will be on the comment board here and get emailed on to you...

Best, Maggie

I'm shocked to hear this Barbara! I have emailed Mick Guerin, the person in charge of the day to day management of the Park to see if he can shed any light. Maggie

Hi everyone, 

it seems like someone has removed all the plants of my plot (the one next to the playground, furthest away from the entrance of the playground). 

Anyone knows why? 



Comment by Colm FItzgerald on February 25, 2018 at 12:06

Hi Maggie, let me know what I need to do next to get going with the plot - looking forward to it

Comment by Nilufer on February 8, 2018 at 13:19

Hi Maggie, i would like to keep my plot for next season, however if there are too many people waiting I can share my plot as its one of the large ones. 

Just let me know please.
