Art on the Farm 2011 :: Session 3 :: Dublin

There wasn't a lot going on when I went by, but I took a few photos of the space and some of the food:

On my walk, I happened upon the Bridgefoot Street Community Garden, which included chickens, veggies and some incredible scarecrows, all bordering a recreation area:
