An Gairdín Organic Garden and Ecology Centre

Galway County Council

Contact Details

An organic garden and centre for promoting principles of sustainable cultivation. Mainly native flowers and hedgerow trees are grown here because their leafing and flowering times coincide with the food and shelter needs of local wildlife, which pollinate and find shelter in them. They hold open planting days and mark National Tree Week in mid March by planting hedgerows.
A building has been developed to house an education programme promoting sustainable growing practice.
Run by a small team of nuns and volunteers, the centre holds seminars, cookery and growing courses, film screenings, mindfulness workshops and public Open Planting
days.
