The HXGROW project emerged from the Harold’s Cross as a social capital building strategy based on a simple idea:
That every household in the community has a window box; a balcony; a container; a raised bed; a back yard; a front garden; a back garden; … where plants can be grown for food or for pleasure.
The project has excelled in the COVID-19 emergency as residents get to grow plants, share wisdom and expertise and support each other through success and failure while implementing social distancing protocols.
With Dublin City Council and Harold’s Cross Community Village Council, planning is now underway to create the ‘HUB’ to support the growing community of growers.
The HUB will provide a central facility to grow plants for community growers to grow on to harvest; provide a living archive of heritage apple and fruit trees to help restore the orchard tradition to Harold’s Cross; be a knowledge centre to support urban agriculture; build capacity to cook, conserve and enjoy fresh produce.

For all our budding junior artists why don’t you draw
or paint a picture which is inspired by your feelings and
experiences at the moment? It might be about enjoying
your neighbourhood walks, helping your neighbours,
missing your friends and family, staying at home or,
doing your schoolwork at home! Whatever inspires you!
