DCU Community Garden

Living labs are vital to our sustainability work at DCU and one of the most important is our DCU Community Garden.

This 1.6 acre off-grid garden on our Glasnevin campus is a vital resource for teaching, research, education, training and community engagement.  

The Garden is open to all staff, students and DCU alumni along with members and organisations from our local community. It also hosts social enterprises such as GrowDome and Garden Gnomes. 

We are also planning to develop a second community garden on our All Hallows campus.


Discover the garden

In the corner of our Glasnevin campus behind the library, you’ll see a gateway that leads down to the garden.
