Enniscorthy Community Allotments

Welcome to the

Enniscorthy Community Allotments 

The Enniscorthy Community Allotments (ECA) group came about after a number of individuals with a keen interest in setting up a community allotment got together in February 2021. With a wide range of experience Enniscorthy Community Allotment group combines interest, enthusiasm and drive. Keen to create something unique within our county, we decided to apply for a Leader Grant to support the development of a community allotment area within Enniscorthy and set about putting the necessary preparations in place.

Community is Key to Our Allotment Project

Our community allotment site is conveniently located in the town. We believe that it can be of a great benefit to schools located in the town and should be a great place to create generational and cross-cultural connections.

With regard to diversity, equality and inclusion, the role of the committee is to support and promote an inclusive culture, provide leadership for the development and implementation of policies and procedures.

27 Raised beds that are wheelchair accessible.

Aims & Objectives

The overall aim of the Enniscorthy Community Allotments (ECA) is to assist amateur gardeners in all aspects of gardening. In detail, the aims of the group are:

 

  • To promote and encourage the practice and knowledge of horticulture between members, especially children, to encourage inter-generational activity.
  • To encourage biodiversity, organic and sustainable growing
  • To establish, manage and maintain the allotment site.
  • To encourage the interaction between members and build community spirit.
  • Carry out any other activities to fulfill the main goal.
