GROW IT YOURSELF: Limerick West GIY with the aim of inspiring people to grow their own food will hold its next meeting on Thursday 18th April at 7.00 pm in D&M Garden Centre, Croagh, with new growers and old hands all welcome. This month’s talk will be given by Chris who will speak about companion planting and it’s benefits. This will also be our second seed and plant swap of the season so please bring any unwanted seeds or excess plants and who knows you might just pick up that seed or 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.

In June and July we will be taking Limerick West GIY on the road visiting some of the many interesting gardens of other members. If you would like to host a meeting at your garden let us know at the next meeting and a month that would suit.
