Anyone interested in the mid-west, all these new roads around Shannon/Ennis/Limerick drive me to distraction. Would love to plant veg/fruit trees/ etc. What with the increase in food parcels being give out, what better way is there to contribute than with the finest of fresh fruit and veg.

Hi
I'm in Ennis. I think its a great idea. There are lots of spots around Ennis that we could target. Maybe start with something small to get going. I could help with transport but I havn't a clue about plants or flowers. I could also help with getting some good PR in the local paper - that might drive more troops to the website. You never know where it could go!! Now all we need is a few more Ennis area subversives! Anyone?
By the way, anyone got money or access to free plants. I broke!

I've been working on a project here in Limerick. It's exhibited in the ev+a art show.  It's not really guerilla gardening as the local council have been pretty supportive, or at least have turned a blind eye.  I've been planting edible plants around the city and mapping them.  There's a physical map in the ev+a hub on Thomas st and one on the website too www.eatlimerick.com

There's a brilliant little uncared for park at the top of Roches st which is just begging to be made into a community garden.  I never intended to do this project alone, but rather to make a hub that people could gather around and a space for everything to be mapped.

Unfortunately, due to unpleasant personal reasons, I have to leave Limerick, just now that the ball's rolling and I'm quite anxious to get other people on board. It seems such a pity to abandon the project.  I'll be back occasionally for more planting and to tend the stuff, but I could really do with some Limerick-based help.

Anyone interested?

You guys should check out Wildroutes in Limerick city.  Its an eco-art guerrilla gardening project run by Mary Conroy.  Here's their Facebook page:

My time is limited at the moment with work, but would be happy to help if i any spare time, keep us posted on any upcoming digs.  I'm a horticulturist and landscape designer so if you need advice on anything drop us a line.

Also, a new group called "Green Limerick" is aiming to act as a hub connecting smaller eco art projects, guerrilla gardening groups and transition town movements in Limerick.  Their facebook page is here:
