Our group - how we are organised
Friends of Meath Gardens is a loose fairly informal community association. Founded by local residents, we hold informal meetings as and when needed, primarily to organise our volunteering days when we plant trees, shrubs and bulbs, water plants in the park and other activities needed to look after Meath Gardens. We also develop proposals and raise donations to help us achieve our landscape strategy which will develop over the years to come. We welcome anyone who would like to join the team to make Meath Gardens and even more wonderful place for all.
The group is open to all. For further information check the park’s notice boards, our Facebook page (Friends of Meath Gardens), instagram: friendsofmeathgardens and twitter: @friendsofmeath1
