A Guide for Design & Implementation of Community Gardens & Allotments for County Carlow

Posted on: 06/08/2023
The guide was produced for RU:URBAN in 2022 and funded by URBACT and Carlow County Council

In recent years, Carlow County Council successfully applied to be part of a URBACT Network called RU:RBAN. URBACT’s mission is to enable cities and towns to work together and develop integrated solutions to common urban challenges, by networking, learning from one another’s experiences, drawing lessons and identifying good practices to improve urban policies.

RU:RBAN was delivered by a partnership between Carlow County Council Executive and elected members, businesses, community groups and NGOs working in the area of Community Gardens and Allotments.

The project has been a success and one area that we in Community Gardens Ireland wish to highlight in particular is the design guide produced.

The Guide for Design & Implementation of Community Gardens for County Carlow contains some excellent up to date advice on a number of topics for every community growing such as how to set up allotments and community gardens, where to get advice, funding, designing for full access for all, polytunnel advice, biodiversity and green recycling.

Thanks to Kieran Comerford from Carlow County Council and Dee Sewell from Greenside Up for their permission to host this on our website.
