Dublin Harvest Festival Springs Into Life

Dublin Community Growers are hosting their annual Harvest Festival in Wolfe Tone Park, Jervis Street on Saturday 14th September from 12 – 5 pm to demonstrate how organic food does need not to be expensive and can be accessible to all.
During the event, organically grown produce from Dublin’s  community gardens will be available free of charge for those in  attendance, and in exchange Dublin Community Growers are asking for a  promise to help out with your local community garden.
There is free entry into the event which will provide a  variety of entertainment including live music from The Fossils and  Prairie Dogs, flower pot painting, a pop up garden, face painting, story telling and much more.
The festival will also feature workshops on bee keeping  and apple pressing which will allow both adults and children to make  their own apple juice using apples that have been collected from trees  all over the city. Attendees are also welcome to bring their own apples for juicing. In  addition, there will be an opportunity for people to get their hands  dirty in seed bomb and grass head making.
Dublin Community Growers are a network of community  gardens in Dublin who meet monthly to discuss community garden projects  and the issues faced by these projects. They provide support and advice  to existing and proposed community gardens as well as organising events and acting as an advocate for community gardens.  The network is growing and is made up  of over 35 community garden groups.
