We are a community food commons project based in the heart of the Irish midlands. Our walled garden in the town centre adjacent to Birr Castle Demense. We keep chickens, grow veg, and promote local food through education and outreach. When coming to us you will find a home with a member of our team here in the town.

Help with Eco Projects
Gardening, tending the animals, working with us on a 'build', or, if its your strength, hosting learning sessions with our small local community.
A bedroom in a house with a member of our team. Generally with internet and food from the garden (seasonally dependent).
With your time off you will find plenty of nice walks in the surrounding area. Bikers will find a downhill biking resort on our county's highest hill 'Fairymount', the Slieve Bloom mountains, Lough Boora Parklands, and Portumna Nature Park are not far. The midlands really holds a lot of natural beauty.
