Acorn Farm

An exciting new environmental project led by The Communnity Foundation in partnership with Derry City and Strabane District Council.

The £6.2 million capital build programme has begun at St Columb’s Park for a unique urban growing space within the City.

258 families in Derry and Strabane have already been rolling up their sleeves on their growing journey.

The participating families have taken the first steps towards growing their own food, with equipment provided and some expert mentoring from Council’s newly appointed horticulturalist and a team of conservation volunteers, that will run over two growing seasons.

The project has brought together young and old – from the little ones who are passionate about doing their bit for the environment, to those who wish to pass on their experience to the next generation.
