    The Cloughmore Centre, Rostrevor, was a beautiful location for this lively event focusing on community gardening.

    Harry Hughes, from the Cabbage Patchers, highlighted the origins of this community gardening project, and the importance of the intergenerational focus.

    Rodd Bond, from the NetwellCASALA Centre at Dundalk Institute of Technology, focused on the need for intersecting global adaptations to changing demographic patterns.
