2018 – GIY/ Energia Today Show: Huge excitement at the GROW HQ in Waterford where Edible Landscape WON the competition. This a great achievement for Westport. A massive thank you to all the local groups and individuals who rallied behind us encouraging friends, relations and students to vote. We couldn’t have done this without all of your support. The prize fund of €5000 means we can double the size of the forest garden at the Quay Community Centre and continue running our food security workshops. Particular thanks to Energia for sponsoring the prize, GIY for inviting us into their fantastic new GROW HQ in Waterford, and of course to RTE’s Daithi, Maura, and Nuala for hosting. We are beyond delighted!
