Planting Workshop

August 19, 2010

_

Transition Year students from Mercy College, Landscape Architecture students from Dublin City Council Parks Department,  architects and volunteers took part in a planting workshop in the courtyard. The plants were provided by Kieran O Neill of Dublin City Council Parks Department.  Marysia O Shea, David Spring and Colm O Sullivan compiled a plant list that included grasses, wild flowers and a herb garden.

Alice Clancy photographed the workshop on behalf of the Irish Architecture Foundation. The images will form part of the exhibition catalogue for A Space for Learning which opens in Dublin in the Autumn.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the workshop
