THE Banner is finally shedding its winter coat and what better way is there to celebrate than to get stuck in to some gardening?
Head along to the Seed and Garden Share on Sunday, April 8 at Ennis Showgrounds for some inspo.
All gardeners from novices to old hands are invited to join this free afternoon from 3-6pm where sharing and bartering is at the forefront.
Anything garden-y goes – share your seed or seedlings, barter your garden books or trade your garden tools.
All donations received will go to Irish Seed Savers, who are joining the afternoon with a stall and a Seed Expert.
Gearing up for the Clare Garden Festival on April 29, the festival organisers are already in the final preparations now with over 70 garden and food stalls booked and expert talks, show garden and entertainment for the day confirmed.
The theme at Clare Garden Festival this year is ‘Gardening for Mental Wellbeing’.
Festival manager and founder Carmen Cronin said: “ In gardening a gentle but so very enriching experience can be found that has been proven to help those with mental health issues and that calms us down on a daily basis supporting and improving our overall wellbeing.”
