The Barrack Street Biodiversity Garden

In the centre of Carlow Town at Barrack Street there is a very interesting project, it`s called Biodiversity Garden.

On information board there is an inspiring quote form Sir David Attenborough: “An understanding of the natural world is a source of not only great curiosity, but great fulfilment.”

Carlow Town Development Forum (Green Group) have planted this garden as a polinator friendly area within our town, supporting biodiversity in our urban environment. The garden was disigned by Dee Sewell, Greenside Up, and contains a variety of perennial plants which help to support and enhance indigenous species. We hope that this space will be enjoyed by all who live in, work in, study in, or visit Carlow Town, no matter what spacies they are.
