COMMUNITY FLOWER Gardens are being developed in the various drives in Cranmore. Two areas in Mc Neill Drive and Carroll Drive are complete and it is planned to undertake eight more gardens in the various drives. Cranmore Co-Op working in partnership with the Cranmore Regeneration Team, Estate Officer Dessie Mc Garry, Community Wardens and the local community are driving this initiative. Local workshops were held with gardening experts from Water glades Gardens and members of the community where they learned about the placement and selection of plants, composting, and maintenance of flower beds. This project is engaging both children and adults in gardening production. Cranmore Place will be one of the next drives to be undertaken ,after further consultation with the Resident’s Association and it is planned to hold an icecream party for the children after their toil. This project is promoting great interaction between residents from the different drives and it is heartening for Cranmore CoOp to see that the partnerships developed are reinforcing the positive aims that are set out in the Cranmore Regeneration Plan. Cranmore Co-Op was enabled to commence this project with the aid of funding from Sligo Borough Council under the Environment Partnership Fund. The gardening project is now expanding having received subsequent funding under the Dormant Accounts RAPID Additionality Measure managed on behalf of the Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs. Any residents who wish to obtain further information regarding this project or to participate in the venture can do so by contacting the Co-Op office on 0719149951.
