An Incredible Edible garden on a Limerick lane.
A lane, where the public could pick and enjoy the produce. This would be a sustainable garden maintained by volunteers, it will include espalier pear trees, apple trees, hanging fruits such as strawberries, peppers and tomatoes. Planters containing root vegetables, chard, herbs and edible flowers. The plants would be planted in wooden planters and we would like to explore the possibility of growing willow to weave above low planters.
Having planted a wild flower garden at the Hunt Museum last year we would like to contribute more to the air quality and biodiversity of our city.
We would use the water from down pipes on the lane, re-directing it through repurposed gutters, explore the possibility of water butts on other down pipes. This project would link with Limerick City Engage prior to and during all festivals. Monitoring of air quality will take place before and during the project.
