Salthill Community Garden

Community gardens throughout Galway City have been busy over the last few months, clearing, planning and starting the planting out of seedlings and seeds for what they hope will be another bumper year of produce.  Community gardens are shared green spaces where members of local communities can come together and grow.  Our Salthill Men’s Shed are members of the ‘Let’s get Galway Growing’ for our organic community garden in Gort Ard.  This time of year, they are always looking for new volunteers to get involved.  You do not have to be a member of the Men’s Shed, membership is open to anyone in our local parish with an interest in gardening.  They are in the process of securing a Polytunnel, sponsored by Galway City Council and now are actively seeking gardeners, both make and female, with an additional focus this year of growing flowers.  If you are interested, please leave your name and contact number with our Parish Office.
