Urban Garden brightens up Smithfield

The previous article may explain why I got involved in urban garden [click here for previous article] … but I think you’ll find Mary Wier of [and] Dublin City Council organised a day that held in store a lot more than just a good looking horticulturist […that’d be me by the way]. The day really did make a difference.

We do need to make an effort to green up ‘our’ spaces.

I hope you enjoyed it and more importantly I hope ‘you’ took something home with you from the day [apart from a big smile] that will help you green up ‘your’ space.

Can you imagine if every shop front made this amount of effort to the front of their business? Wouldn’t Dublin be that little more beautiful. With construction work, traffic and all of the usual razamataz which might not inspire excitement in your day – what an effect it would have!

We did these planters for Itsa4 restaurant a couple of months ago and credit where it is due, it’s not only looks great, but it is really relaxing to sit outside and have some [really good] coffee. They also did itsabagel. Worth a mention? You better believe it! A decision was made to go the extra green mile and as I said … if the girls of ‘itsA…’ can inspire the rest of Dublin to do something similar then yes, very well worth it.
