Proposal to Allocate Funds in 2021 Budget
On Wednesday, 12th May, Donal McCormack and Maeve Foreman made a submission to the Oireachtas Joint Committee on Social Protection, Community and Rural Development and the Islands.
Many challenges affect Community Gardens today, like temporary licenses/agreements with the land providers (i.e. local authorities, private landowners) and lack of secure funding. These challenges were raised, along with a proposal to allocate funds to support existing gardens and the creation of new ones in the next budget.
