At the beginning of April, Donabate Portrane Men’s Shed was delighted to receive word that Fingal County Council had granted us a second plot at Turvey Allotments. Our first allotment has been the mainstay of our activities over the past year, when other pursuits have been curtailed. We are very grateful to the Council for giving us the opportunity to expand our work at the allotments. The past month has been remarkably busy. We cleared the plot of brambles, weeds and debris; we dug over and rotovated the entire plot, spread manure and erected fencing around the plot. A generous grant from Fingal Camber Community Fund was used to install a greenhouse, which we are using to propagate for planting outside. Anyone interested in joining, please contact Jim on 086-3694316.
