“Dublin’s environmentally conscientious community of allotment growers”
Glencullen Farm sits quietly in foothills of south Dublin, enveloped by preserved woodlands and native hedgerow. Pastural land historically, the allotments are a natural recreational retreat, with panoramic views of both Little and Big Sugarloaf running down to the Irish sea. The soil is of fine arable quality and with a light footprint, we tend and enrich the biodiversity of this unique, special place.
