teachers from groarty primary
Saturday saw the first our first trip into the monthly Walled City market, and boy was it great fun!. Groarty primary School and Maybrook Adult Training Centre took part and were offering a selection of produce and products the groups had been making and growing. The weather was great and the crowds were good, and we nearly sold out of everything. Any group can join the stall (see here) and we'll be back in April with more community produce.
A wee bit of confusion at the start of the day meant we had no tables to display the community produce on...Eeeek!! But many thanks to Austins Departments Store and Tower Hotel NI who answered our please for help by lending us tables for the day. Thanks to folks who brought us old carrier bags down to use for selling the plants, thanks to the folks who brought us bags of change.....thanks to Brenda Stevenson, Tony Monaghan and Shona Campbell from Derry City Council, thanks to Todds of Campsie for helping with the transportation of everything (and stuart for the help with the signs). Thanks to Maybrook Adult Training Centre and Groarty Intergrated Primary for taking part, Thanks to Donal Doherty from WarehouseNo1 and Chef Brian McDermott for the encouragement on the day.....Remember next stand is first sat in April, lots more seasonal plants and things will be on offer....
