Dunmanway – Grow it, Cook it, Eat it!

Dunmanway Community Garden – Grow it, Cook it, Eat it​ project welcomed our Development Worker warmly to sample the first pizzas made in their new pizza oven. All in the name of good programme management she dutifully went along to ‘help’ out!

Their Sunshine Gardener’s group was potting and planting and the youngest gardening member was very happy to show his handy-work off. As usual the garden was in full swing and Charlie and Maria whipped up a homemade pizza and barbecue storm in their community garden cooking area. Delicious!

The garden is a welcoming space for everyone from the local community and beyond. Dunmanway Family Resource Centre​ are excellent at partnering up with local organisations to make the most of the facility for all to use and be involved in. The garden and cooking space has made a huge difference to the cohesion and general well-being of the community.

Dunmanway – Grow it, Cook it, Eat it! is part of the safefood​ funded Community Food Initiative Programme 2013-15. In Healthy Food for All we are delighted to support the development of these projects and are keen to see more like it all over the country.
