Everything starts with a Plan!

We've come along way since we first started St. Francis Community Garden in 2009, which began on paper with a plan. The MRA turned a derelict site that was left after Regeneration demolished 3 perfectly good houses against the wishes of our community. We had asked the Council and Regeneration to open up the houses, we even supplied them with a list of 18 tenants within Moyross that wanted to relocate, but they went ahead and knocked them. It was a very demoralising time and a sin to behold, but as the saying goes..."it's better to light a candle than curse the darkness"...and that just what we did.
