Please help with the Evergreen Centre Community Garden Project

The Community Garden Project is due to commence at the Evergreen Centre on Saturday next August 9th. We would really appreciate your input and would encourage as many volunteers as possible on the day. The project will be overseen by Esther Gerrard, Landscape Architect and cofounder of Bloom Fringe.

We aim to meet at the garden at 11am and finish by 3pm at the latest. As a starting point we need to clear the site, so please bring along spades, forks and if anyone gas a rotavator  it would be really useful. A scythe would be a great help too.

Please circulate this email as widely as possible, "many hands make light work"! This project is for the whole community to participate in and enjoy.

Thanking you in advance and looking forward to seeing you on the day.

Tackling Graffiti in Terenure

Residents in our area have reported a recent spate of graffiti on Templeogue Road, Olney Crescent, Beechlawn Way (leading up to St Joseph's BNS), and Rathfarnham Road. Most of the graffiti are on property owned by Dublin City Council and public utilities. 

Our planning officer Jim Dowling is compiling a comprehensive list of the locations where the graffiti are to be found and will send it to DCC.  If you can help, please e-mail secretary@terenureresidentsassociation.ie, stating the address or nearest house number, the nature of the item (eg, litter bin, pole, control box etc), and the owner of the item (if known: eg, DCC, ESB, Eircom or UPC). Information should be received no later than 4th August. 

If you would like to report graffiti yourself, you can do so by contacting DCC's South-East Area Office at (T) 222-2243 or (E) southeast@dublincity.ie. 

Preventing graffiti

Removing graffiti is a costly use of limited resources and the money would be better spent on other services. You can read about preventing graffiti at this link to Graffiti Hurts (a US site). Tips include keeping the neighbourhood clean and tidy, removing graffiti promptly and educating young people about the implications of graffiti.
