Brian Burke at Leighlinbridge – the Garden Village
To bloom and back
Brian Burke, RTÉ Super Garden winner of 2015 and recipient of a Silver Gilt medal at Bloom in the Phoenix Park pays his first visit to Leighlinbridge – the Garden Village. Suitable for both novice gardeners and garden connoisseurs, this workshop is an informative and engaging introduction to the War and Peace garden presented at Bloom 2016, which aimed to raise awareness of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Syria. From its origins in the Syrian Refugee Centre in Monasterevin, Brian traces the extraordinary journey of this garden and its hopes and aspirations through excellent photography and visual presentation. Following this Brian will conduct a short tour of the community gardens in Leighlinbridge, designed and developed by Leighlinbridge Improvement Group and recently featured in the Irish Garden.
