Today, An Taisce Environmental Education announced the winners of the new Green Communities Garden Photography Competition.

Celebrating the beauty and diverse character of Ireland’s Community Gardens. These community green spaces have brought a breath of fresh air to many city streets, and estates, as well as delivering community amenities in rural villages and towns across Ireland.

These garden projects have contributed a great deal to our collective quality of life over the last decade, sometimes in unexpected ways. Their contribution towards community interaction is strengthened by community gardening’s inclusiveness. Indeed gardening is one of the few activities that people from all walks of life can, and do, engage in.

To celebrate all the hard-won successes from scores of different community gardens, allotments, community orchards, and volunteer landscaping projects, this new Green Communities photo competition promotes the best images of community green space projects from across the whole country in one exhibition.

The photography competition was opened to everyone, the only requirement being for photographs that feature volunteer community green spaces. All such projects and their neighbourhoods stand to benefit from this national promotion of successful horticultural improvement.

By bringing together the best images of these gardens An Taisce Green Communities celebrates the success of your community spirit in making Ireland a greener place for people, plants, and biodiversity.
