Hello,

Im organising a group dig in Belfast.
We will be meeting at
6pm Tuesday 15th at Catalyst Arts
If your interested get in touch, come along to share ideas, consider the possibilities, discuss locations and tactics.
Catalyst have been growing lots of nice veggies out on the Balcony which we will be transplanting about the city.
Once we agree on a site we will set a time and date for action, most likely the end of the week.

Depending on the weather Tuesday we might go for a walk to look at sites.
Afterwards returning to Catalyst Arts for tea and biscuits.

There will be also be a screening of the documentary
'How Cuba Survived Peak Oil' - 56mins - http://www.powerofcommunity.org
The film documents how cubans turned to urban agriculture to survive a major energy/fuel shortage in the 1990's.

We are moving into a time where fossil fuels are reaching a peak, food and fuel are becoming more and more expensive. We need to be become more independent and sustainable in both areas.
I heard a great saying last week, we've got to change the paradigm 'Food not Lawns' ha ha.
Anyway theres the moral justfication for our mischief. As if we ever needed one.  Cheesy

All the best

Hi,

How was the digging? Sorry not to reply earlier but haven't checked the community since a very long time. If you're up to some digging or any other ideas please let me know.
Thanks,
Rad

Hey Radek,
The planting in June on Fountain Street (and around about) went really well! Sorry I didn't reply sooner to this - we only registered ourselves on the forum today! The guerrilla gardening was a particularly successful part of the project, we'll definitely be doing similar things again. Hope you're keeping well!

Hi, I'd be interested in getting involved in guerilla gardening - I've already been distributing nasturtium seeds around Belfast for a few years without realising I was part of a movement! It'd be good to take part in future events.

Okay, it's been over 2 and a half years since the last post on the Belfast board.

Willing to try and get things started again.

I'll be in town for one day next Wednesday, November 7th, visiting the big boat.  I wonder if anyone is interested in planting a few bulbs.  I'll be bringing my trusty trowel and an onion bag full of bulbs.

reply to this thread if you're interested.

Looks like I'll be taking the 09.35 from Connolly and arriving at Belfast Central at 11.50

seeyou there...

Right, up and at 'em, bright and early.



The route...


Arrival at Belfast Central, bulbs in tow...


Tip: Anyone arriving on an Enterprise train at Belfast Central, the ticket entitles you to ride on the shuttle to the Titanic Quarter for free. No excuses, now!!! Wink

OK, straight off the bus at the museum, got straight to work on a big container...


noone around to say "stop, cease and desist"  here  it is wide view...


Enboldened by nobody about to put a stop to my gallop, I went to containers right in front...


and sure, the other containers, they might feel left out and unloved, unless I planted something in them...so...

and the ones beside it aswell...
Then, this one over by the restaurant, which looked pretty dark. Little did I realise that all my friends inside could see me, plain as day!!!

Hopefully someone will photograph the results in the spring...

Hiya Paigan,

not since 'My Lovely Assistant' lent a hand last year have I had any, eh, assistance.

Another one man job.  Though, I had a photographer in Leeds! Wink  My local 'fixer'.

The Belfast page is quite quiet. Like lots of the pages. Feeling kinda lonely, ploughing the lone furrow an' all.... Wink

have you been up to much, yourself?

had to correct my spelling mistake and tidy up....

Well, it's been a while, but paid a visit back to the Titanic Quarter recently and revisited the big planters. If anyone could  take a pic during the the height of daffodil season, that'd be great.

Failing that, these'll do.



and another one...

I'm delighted. Pity there's no flowers.
Maybe next year!   Grin
