On Tuesday 24 March Alan Ryan will present a talk called ‘Colclough Walled Garden: Resoration of a Georgian Kitchen Garden’
Alan started the restoration of Colclough Walled Garden in Wexford in 2009 with a small grant and permission to restore the walled garden adjacent to the OPW monument of Tintern Abbey. Although he had no horticultural qualifications or experience of restoring walled gardens his passion and work ethic inspired hundreds of people to volunteer, sponsor, donate to make the restoration possible.
