GIY Thurles Green Learning Day

Growing your own food can be an isolating experience particularly when you are a novice and you just don’t know where to start.

Those dreaded words “Economic Recession” and “Unemployment” have brought about a huge revival in gardening and vegetable growing and also a sense of true community, particularly through the use of available public allotments.

Allotment gardening reduces stress, especially when it gets you away from the pressures of modern urban living. The health and social benefits of allotment growing can offer a particular advantage to individuals, particularly those who suffer with physical and mental health issues.

You can developing new skills, pick up new tips from other gardeners, whilst chatting and passing the time of day. Old experienced hands pass on the tips and skills which in the future you can use to mentor other newcomers. Through meeting and sharing experiences with others you will soon begin to rediscover a sense of community that’s appears to have gone missing from so many of our lives today. Anyway there is something spiritual about bringing your hands into contact with the good earth.

A “Grow It Yourself” group is about creating a grower’s community so that people can come together in their locality to learn from each other and exchange tips, knowledge, produce
