There are five networks to choose from:
Derry & Strabane: A network of community gardens, allotment groups, and growing projects in the Derry City and Strabane District Council Area, working to support each other in our projects, improve our access to resources and make ourselves heard as a vibrant part of the local and national environmental voice for change.
Newry Mourne & Down: A group of community gardens, allotment groups and social farms, who have been meeting regularly for the past 2 years, online and in person, to support each other, to share seeds and plants and improve our growing skills, make friends, and build better links with statutory bodies.
Ards & North Down: Set up in 2020. Members have visited each other’s gardens, and built links with each other, and hope to go on to achieve more together.
Belfast: Recently formed, but already very active with some great meet ups and some great links. The network meets monthly online and have a WhatsApp group. There is so much gardening, school gardening and guerrilla gardening happening in this area. Join to find out what is happening in the next street!
Alleyways Group/Reclaim the Commons: This group is to allow communication between community members in Belfast City Council area with an interest in greening entries and other underused, unloved spaces in the city. The aim is to improve communication between ourselves and decision makers, influence how community groups are supported in this work, and support and help each other in our work. Occasional meetings to discuss topics of interest. You are very welcome to join us!
