Welcome to our blog. Here you will find the ramblings of Mick McEvoy, Community Gardening Officer for Groundwork N.I.(GWNI) This blog will keep you updated on the development of the fantastic Colin Community Allotments and the social enterprises we hope to create all based around sustainable local food networks here at Colin Glen, West Belfast.
Well it’s been quite a journey thus far. Together with Colin Neighbourhood Partnership (CNP) and the fantastic local community we have developed a state of the art Community allotment and garden project on land which was previously used as a brick works, a scrap metal yard and a dump! Progress we think.
I’ll endeavour to keep you up to date each week as our project grows. Feel free to get in touch and also to get involved in the ‘real world’ as opposed to here in the online world.
I’ll start by posting the latest Colin Allotments and Community Garden newsletter I’ve published.
