LUFS: Cultivating Community Resilience

Creative Spark, located in Dundalk, is in partnership with Louth County Council for a project called Louth Urban Food Sanctuary (LUFS).

 

LUFS is an initiative designed to empower the residents in Louth to gain skills for developing local food resilience in response to the changing climate. It is a collaboration with community gardens and home grower participants.

This programme kicked off in October, and recent activities include a launch event at Creative Spark, events such as planting vegetables at Blackrock Community Garden and filming sessions with DkiT Creative Media & Arts Department at several locations across the county.

Local organic gardener Roisin Cotter provided valuable guidance on growing garlic as part of the project. With her expertise, participants gained the knowledge to cultivate their own garlic and throughout the project she will advise on matters green.

LUFS is hosting a Seed Day at Creative Spark to launch the 2024 growing season. This event will unite participants in seed sharing and planting. The project is set to run until December 2024, promising ongoing community engagement and growth.

 

Stay updated on the latest development and events in the following website www.louthurbanfoodsanctuary.com to know what will be happening around the year.
