Gardening Courses in Mayo – In recent years we have been running courses in organic gardening and courses for disabled groups. These have been very successful and our next plan is to run many more courses and to upgrade the facilities available.
We now have a number of poly tunnels in the garden, one of which has been set up to allow wheel chair access and has raised beds and low potting tables. These groups have been using the courtyard hall as a meeting room but we now plan to build facilities in the garden itself. Usually groups come one day a week for nine or ten weeks and do all the work themselves. They are then able to take the produce away for themselves.
The organic gardening courses are run by a qualified instructor usually on Saturdays, over a six to ten week period.
