huntstown community centre, gardening talk

  • Speaker: Peter Donegan
  • When: Thursday May 3rd 2012 @ 7.30pm
  • Where: Huntstown Community Centre, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15
  • Admission: €2

The last garden talk I did, it was €6 in to hear me talk. Now, I’m an absolute bargain at just €2 entry. All for a great cause and what promises to be a great bit of craic 🙂

In case you are wondering, I didn’t make the poster noted. But, with a big smile, the story goes a little like so.

A few weeks ago I got a message in from Sharon Farrell of Huntstown Ladies Club:

Hi peter we are a group of 30 women in the huntstown area of dublin 15, and meet every thursday evening at 8pm till 10pm we would be very interested if by chance you could visit us in our local community center and give a talk and advice in relation to gardens and plants…..

Of course I had a wee chat with Sharon and a few days later this message arrived:

Hi peter, had a meeting with club and all is going well. we are having our night in the hall and decorating it, some garden centers have donated plants and flowers to us, we will have public coming too, and is it ok with you if photos are taken and….

Naturally [with another smile] I agreed. And then I got this message….

Its kind of heading into a big event peter, everyone very excited we will be doing some raffles too to raise some money for the local kids and elderly in the community, so we decided to call it the sod show event, hope you enjoy the easter

Got a garden, a window ledge or a balcony, pop on by and say hello. I’ll look forward to seeing you for what promises to be a cracking night and I’m happy to say a little bit more of an audience than the initially intended 30 ladies. 😉

Seperate-ish Update: I’ve been asked to note if any garden related companys wanna get involved and donate some plants or garden paraphernalia. Go on. Go on, go on, go on…… g’wan. Good causes and all that. You’ll feel much better for it 😉
