This week Paraic tells us about a community initiative in Kiltimagh and a meithel gathering for the purpose of planting up a bank with biodiversity plants for the local community. The programme focuses in on what people can be doing at the moment in the garden.

There's a reminder about planting autumn veg, and steps invovled in getting a composter up and running.
