UCC Community Gardens are jointly owned by the Environmental Society and the International Development Society and are run by staff and students of UCC. The project began in 2007, with the installation of three polytunnels behind the Societies Office, on College Road.
Elements of permaculture are practiced in an urban setting and, as a community garden, all who get involved can take some of the food grown in the gardens.
The garden is also a social outlet for people interested in growing their own food with BBQ’s, annual Halloween and Christmas parties, workshops and talks on gardening, natural building, cooking with food and developing natural skill sets also all hosted there.
