COMMUNITY WORKSHOP: This event gives you an opportunity to have your say in shaping and managing your local environment. It offers a forum for members of the community to provide feedback on the best way to develop a common vision for Tarbert so that our needs, desires and aspirations for the future of our surrounding landscape, heritage and ecology are best served. This event gives you the chance to say what you would like to be achieved in your own area, be it a street, an estate or a town-land particularly in relation to Tidy Towns 2013. The Workshop will be held in the Community Centre on Thursday March 21 from 8.00 to 9:30 pm. All are welcome to attend and share their ideas.

You who love your greens this talk will be excellent for both the new grower and the experienced old hands. There will also be our first seed / plant swap of the season so please bring any unwanted seeds or excess plants and who knows you might just pick up that seed / plant you have been looking for. There is no need to bring anything if you don’t have spares and you can still take what you see during the swap. GIY’s vision is for a healthier, more connected and more sustainable world where people grow their own food. The organisation brings people together in community groups and online to inspire and empower them to grow vegetables. More information from www.giyireland.com.
