Our New GIY Herb and Sensory Garden

17 Apr
2018

Volunteers from GIYCULLY & SULLYAura Leisure and Microsoft Ireland braved the elements to plant our brand new GIY sensory and herb garden here in LauraLynn.

This wonderful new garden will provide a lot of joy for our little heroes but will also be a great learning tool and provide wonderful homegrown flavours for mealtimes. We are going to have a lot of fun with it and create many wonderful memories.

The garden is worth €3,000 and was a prize won by the team at Aura Leisure following their participation in the GIY and Cully & Sully workplace food growing competition ‘Give Peas A Chance’. Teams from workplaces around Ireland and the UK were asked to grow peas at work and complete challenges as they grew.

The Aura Leisure team from Ranelagh, dubbed the ‘The PeaDiddies’ were the overall winners because of their food growing passion and their humour. We are so grateful that they chose our special hospice to donate the garden to and delighted to be part of the extensive GIY family.
