The greening of the city will be informed by feedback provided by its local and trans-disciplinary audience/communities.
This community will promote planting in public spaces, gardens and balconies, find novel places to grow. Also, an important aspect of this project, is for the community to be inspired to start using the Green again as a civic space.
Whether it be product design and commercialisation or garden design and organic farming, Rebecca has found a lot of joy in the process of making things happen and it has led her to becoming a project coordinator very naturally. One of her latest achievements as a co-founder of the ‘top of the city’ garden is a total transformation of a landfill into a little green paradise for local communities, where vegetables are grown and summer events happen. As a committee member of the community gardens Ireland, Rebecca commits her time and energy to support forming and networking of the community growing spaces in Ireland.
We made these incredibly cute Christmas tree decorations, the sweetest mushrooms with wooden branch stems and recycled material frills. Such a joy to create such unique pieces for our trees and learn a new skill joined by members of the Ballybricken Community. We had some wonderful conversations and shared ideas and mince pies, tiz the season after all!
We are looking to hear from people to live in or have a connection to Ballybricken. The council currently have plans to replace the footpaths on the Green, this will take place after the summer. In addition to upgrading the footpaths, the council are also creating some flower beds. Are there plants that you would like to see or are there any other facilities you would like to see on the Green. Now is the time to have your say!
