Design Facilitation-Glasnevin Community Garden

I am working with the local residents living near the old Smurfit Paper Mill in Glasnevin to explore ways to revitalise the now abandoned site. I will run a series of community design events that aim to generate ideas for its rejuvenation, options for how the unused land can have a positive local impact, and proposals for the siting of a community garden. I will draft a Concept Plan based on the Participatory Design process, and along with the Community Garden Committee, will be presenting the plans to the necessary site stakeholders to gain approval for our works. It is intended that any works will be temporary as NAMA currently owns the lands and it is a key site within Dublin City Council’s Mount Joy/Phibsborough Local Area Plan.
