We’re delighted to announce that The Food for Thought Garden won a Silver Prize at Bloom!
The main aim of the ‘Food for Thought’ Garden at Bloom, designed by Elma Fenton and commissioned by Dublin City Council and Cork Institute of Technology’s Clean Technology Centre, is to highlight food waste and show how to prevent it.
The ‘Food for Thought’ Garden is supported by the Local Authority Prevention Network and Stop Food Waste. These initiatives work in partnership with local community groups, businesses, festivals and householders to promote and highlight the message of food waste prevention nationwide. Why not drop in to Bloom and take a look?
Today The President, Michael D. Higgins, visited out garden at Bloom and met some of the LAPNers!
LAPN and Stop Food Waste also launched their campaign of events and activities in the 2nd half of 2014 to prevent food waste at bloom.
Postscript: There was great interest in the garden all through the Bloom Festival 2014 with many visitors enquiring about it and about the underlying message of food waste prevention. As well as receiving a silver medal, it generated a lot of discussion between the visitors and the volunteers who greeted them. Well done to all the LAPN and other volunteers who spent time explaining the message and a special well done to Sandra Smith of Dublin City Council whose vision, hard work and dedication made the garden and the greening of Bloom 2014 such a major success.
