supporting neighbourhoods
to grow cook eat together

Our Shared Plate is supporting neighbourhoods to grow, cook and eat together.

Join us as we embark on an exciting journey of growing, cooking, and enjoying vibrant meals together. Let’s turn every plate into a celebration, making memories that grow as we create and share food in the heart and soul of our neighbourhoods!”

Introducing Our Shared Plate, a ground-breaking climate action project generously funded by Pobal, aimed at fortifying climate resilience and ensuring food security right in the heart of our communities. Our Shared Plate is set to unfold in nine neighbourhoods across Laois, Kildare, and Longford. This pilot initiative is not just about sustainability – it’s about bringing neighbours together in a shared commitment to a greener, more resilient future.

Our journey begins by engaging the community, through informative sessions, identifying existing resources, and providing the support needed to grow together. From there, we will roll out a series of educational workshops to provide know-how to our neighbourhoods; know-how to cultivate community gardens, establish communal ovens, or create inviting eating spaces, each tailored to the unique needs of the neighbourhood.

As the season’s bounty is harvested we are planning a celebration within each neighbourhood by hosting a vibrant Street Feast style event.

We will use the learning from this pilot to build a toolkit so that neighbourhoods across the country can also sow the seeds of positive change.

Join us on this exciting adventure.
