What’s Happening Now

Sir John Carling site for new Civic Hospital

Don’t miss the Friends’ Used Book Sale Sat June 24 and Sun June 25 – it’s a two day sale for a reason!

Stay in touch with the Spring Newsletter and June Farm Notes.

Friends continue to urge protection of the Farm’s public spaces in a statement, in letters to the NCC (see response) and Minister McKenna (see response), and in interviews.

“It’s a research facility. It’s a public garden. It is a heritage site.
We would like to see it stay that way.”
