Vegetable Garden

School Garden

We started growing vegetables in Scoil Mhuire in 2009. We had no vegetable patch at this time so we developed a mobile schoolyard garden. We wheeled everything out to the yard on trolleys during the school day and brought everything back in after school. It was a labour of love!





In 2011 we reclaimed a small patch in the teacher's car park which had a tree and shrubs in it and turned it into a vegetable garden.





In 2012 we bought lovely wooden planters and we use them as raised beds. It is now thriving. Each year we rotate the vegetables in the limited space we have.


We are growing the following vegetables there this year:
Cabbage
Cauliflower
Potatoes
Tomatoes
Beetroot
Rocket
Turnip
White Onion
Red Onion
Red Lettuce
Iceberg Lettuce
Peas
Broadbeans
Courgettes
Parsley
Basil
Carrots
