Kingscourt – Running from 09.30-12.30pm on Tuesdays since as recently as April 2021, they’ve achieved great things. We are rejuvenating an unused, overgrown piece of land into a place local people can work together to grow, learn and relax in nature. Carol, of the Kings Head, kindly said we could set up a garden and we’ve transformed the jungle into plots and a growing community space. It means a lot to those who help – ‘’I’m in recovery and joined near the start of the project not long after leaving a treatment centre. This opportunity has allowed me to re-engage with the community and work alongside some lovely people and learn about gardening, growing and cultivating the earth.’’

We are looking for volunteers to get involved and help to put in raised beds and seating, build compost bins, grow food, maintain the gardens and share cups of tea. All abilities and experience welcome. This will be an opportunity to make new friends, share knowledge (and tea!) and enjoy being creative.

All you need to bring is some gloves and good sturdy footwear.

Donations of any gardening tools, garden chairs and a table would be very welcome.

If you would like to find out more or get involved, please get in touch by emailing us at or via Facebook here:
