MoLI Gardens Volunteer Information Session

Designed by Ciaran Beattie as an oasis of calm for readers, the MoLI gardens are sensory gardens, with six hundred pink David Austin roses sit alongside the paths trimmed by lavender borders. The sound of running water compliments the shades of purple and blue of the Miss Saigon and Allium irises which were planted last Autumn. They are just coming into bloom now and the gardens will be awash with colour in just a few short weeks.

We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers with green fingers who would like to keep this new piece of the public realm growing and beautiful. MoLI’s volunteer gardening committee will work throughout the year deadheading, planting, pruning and training. We’re hosting a free drop in information session on Tuesday, 10 March. If you’re interested in becoming involved, or would just like to learn more about this wonderful space, we invite you to join us.
