Support an Organic Garden presence in this year's St. Patrick's Day Parade!

The Lets' Get Galway Growing network will be represented in this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade by members of the Westside and Ballinfoile Mór Community Organic Gardens who will be promoting the healthy and social message of growing organic fruits, vegetables and herbs in community settings where local residents can work collaboratively with other local people of all ages for the good of themselves and their neighbourhoods.
 It is hoped that members of the new Eglinton Asylum Seekers Accommodation Community Garden will also join us. But we also need supporters of community organic gardening from all across Galway city and beyond to join us in the Parade in other to ensure that our presence is substantial in terms of quantity as well as quality!

Hence everyone is invited to come along to a discussion session regarding organic gardeners’ involvement (banners, costumes, numbers of participants etc) in the Parade at 7pm next Tuesday March 11th in the Lus Leana Community House on the Headford Road.

The following evening (Wed) we will undertake a workshop in the same venue using simple but effective artistic materials with art facilitator Maurico Figueroa.
To fit into the theme of this year’s parade, our artistic hats and costumes will also reflect appropriate elements of ‘Irish Myths and Irish Legends’ such Shamrocks, Wild Flowers & Native Trees & wild animals (birds, insects, foxes).
