A talk on edible forest gardening, permaculture & sustainable living systems for the urban environment.
Tuesday 26th March, 7pm
Paddy O’ Kearney is director of City Composting Ltd, an urban garden situated on the roof of The Chocolate Factory in Dublin’s city center. Paddy will speak to us about creative ways to use space in urban environments, and give us tips on how best to utilise and re-use the materials we have to hand to make beautiful, ecological and edible gardens.
A note from Paddy:
City Composting was conceived in light of recent legislation being brought in by the EU and a want to take responsible action to help alleviate both the waste generated by our city and our carbon footprint.
The use of cargo bikes to collect waste and composting in the city is, in essence, key to the project.
We are currently up-cycling The Chocolate Factory roof to showcase the ethos, resource management and food production in collaboration with Urban Farm.
Through the use of various composting and growing techniques, in particular vertical gardening, we are building a working model which will hopefully be used as a template across the city.
Doors at 7pm, talk will begin at 7.30pm
