The Garden Outreach Project

Now for Community groups!

The success of the Garden Outreach Project has encouraged us to offer this service to other groups in the community.

The Schools Project

Convert your school grounds into a highly stimulating and interactive resource with the potential to support the cross-curricular teaching of SESE Science, Geography, History, Maths, Irish, Art & literacy.

We are offering National Schools and Community Groups an opportunity to establish their own vegetable garden.

The museum provides assistance with planning and building the garden and will arrange for our Gardener to visit you to help with setting up a garden which can be tailored to suit your site.

Corclough NS, Co. Mayo piloted this project in 2009 and achieved their 3rd DPS Award of Excellence. 15 schools to date have benefitted from this innovative project.

Starting a school garden can help towards achieving The Discover Primary Science and Green Flag Awards.
