Today (25/3/12) the CDC in cooperation with residents in Charlemont Street continued to work on a communal garden for the area.
Spokesperson for the CDC and Charlemont Street resident Tony Nicoletti commented:
“As we entered the 4-5 week of our gardening, the fruits of our labour have finally started to materialise.”
“Our potatoes, with the help of donated horse manure, are starting to sprout from the soil and it shouldn’t be long now till we’re able to harvest them. So far we have different varieties of seeds planted, tomatoes, peas, garlic and beans just to name a few, that have also sprung forth from the soil and begun to grow.”
“We were also kindly donated a 1000 litre container, by our comrade within the CDC. This is an invaluable tool and one that will greatly enhance our gardening productivity, especially in the hot summer day’s ahead.”
“Week by week, the garden is slowly but surely taking shape. We have paint at the ready for the surrounding walls and a group of activists eager to get stuck in. It won’t be long now until the garden will be in full production mode and we are turning out some nice organic fruits and vegetables.”
