Paddy is a well respected figure in organic horticulture in Inishowen, being involved in organic farming and gardening for a lifetime. Paddys garden was for many years an inspirational venue for school and community groups to learn about biodiversity, food production and nature, but due to illness in Paddys family the garden had taken a back-seat. So the NLN crew, offered Paddy some help to get his garden back open to the public. This offer came about after a fantastic visit the students had to the garden, where Paddy gave the group so many ideas on fruit and vegetable growing that the guys felt they needed to repay Paddy!
This week we tackled the wildlife pond, relaid a gravel path, and planted some gravel loving plants around the house!
