Episode 11: Growing Community

Growing Community

Green Bites visited with community gardens on Cork’s Northside at the end of the spring Covid-19 lockdown to learn how gardening is not only used therapeutically to aid mental health, but to grow resilient communities. 

Community Health officers Sarah Carr and John Paul O’Brien give Ellie a tour of NICHE Community Garden in Knocknaheeny.  Nearby in Gurranebraher, Micheál O’Connor has founded The Hut Rooftop Garden, at a resource used predominantly by young people.
