Skibbereen Community Orchard and Garden, Gortnaclohy Road /3pm -5pm


After meandering through the street market and picking up delicious goodies for a picnic, why not take a stroll down Market Street to discover Skibbereen’s community orchard and garden. Join GIY Skibbereen for a relaxing afternoon of good food and good company. This is a potluck event....if you wish, bring food to share.  Roam the garden; pick and taste fresh herbs, salads and vegetables from the many raised beds; see simple ways to grow your own.  Meet enthusiastic growers who are passionate about growing food together to share. Don’t forget the community orchard and gardens are open and accessible to the public throughout the year, pop in any time to see what’s a growing.  There will also be an apple display: Peruse and taste a selection of locally-grown apple varieties; bring along your own unknown apple varieties for identification.
