Geodome Launch at CMC International Garden

Following the successful launch of the International Garden in September 2022, the project continued to grow thanks to the dedication of our gardeners, volunteers, funders, and supporters.

On the 21st of October 2023 we launched our new GeoDome ‘ Plantopia’ surrounded by friends, family, colleagues and guests. The new dome will allow migrant families to grow plants and vegetables that couldn’t survive the Irish climate. It will be a space where our community can share knowledge, learn from each other, form friendships and create networks.

Fellow Gardeners Selma Alsahli and Catherine Aribasoye
