Local Stories, Transformative Connections: Art Hives in Action: Connections and Cross Pollination: Blackrock Park

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

The Blackrock Park Art Hive is located in Blackrock, County Louth. Blackrock is a traditional seaside village on the east coast of Ireland. Blackrock Park is a community crafted park, designed and cultivated by hundreds of adults and children who live nearby. The gardens in the park are biodiversity and pollinator friendly. There is a forest garden (with edible wild foods), a medieval garden, a Celtic garden, an intergenerational flower garden, a wildflower garden, and a composting education area. These gardens also showcase the artistic and horticultural talents of environmental volunteers and local school children. Three local primary schools have created nature habitats in the park accompanied by pubic celebrations incorporating music, dance, poetry, wild foods, and environmental education.
