Ploughing Championship ‘Time Travel’ Garden

Two Deerpark CBS students as part of Foróige Youth Club, win Time Travel Gardens at this year Ploughing Championship.

Four gardens designed and built by Foróige young people were on display at the National Ploughing Championships.

Adam O Flynn and Dean Forde-Ring deserve special recognition as students who are actively getting involved in their local community. They worked with Diarmuid Gavin to develop their ‘time travel’ themed garden was truly spectacular.

Thousands of attendees stopped by to see the garden, including our own Deerpark Ag Ed class who traveled up for the day. We were delighted to have President Michael D. Higgins visit the garden, in addition to the Tánaiste and Labour Leader Joan Burton TD and Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney.

Well done lads what great ambassadors for the organisation you are.
