Get gardening!

Our team of guerrillas led by Sinéad Breathnach-Cashell and Colm Clarke (above, L & R) have started on the week's mission of creating green interventions in Fountain Street, with moss graffiti, vertical gardens and much more. Today they've got started with a plan of action.

The workshop is open to all, and will start at 12pm on Thurs 23rd, Fri 24th and Sat 25th, lasting through the afternoon - it's open to everyone and you can drop in for the whole day or as long as you like to contribute ideas or just soak up the colourful atmosphere! And there's artwork by Aisling O'Beirn, Catherine Roberts and Eva Maher hanging on the wall, from the ceiling and in the weePLACE cabinet. Come on down!
