St Mary’s Community Gardens


These gardens are a wonderful story of renewal – created from the neglected wilderness of the old walled garden belonging to the parochial house in the middle of Sligo town. Started in 2009, there is now a thriving community garden, an orchard and an apiary where local people join together to cultivate food and friendships.
