We are delighted to announce that three of our members will open their gardens to members and friends on Saturday 6th July 2019 between 1pm – and 5pm all in support of St. Francis Hospice, Raheny.

On behalf of the patients, staff and volunteers, I would like to thank the members of the Howth and Sutton Horticultural Society for their very generous donation to our hospice garden. It is much appreciated and will be used wisely. We are putting our thinking hats on about planting something lovely for us all to enjoy for many seasons ahead.
Your thoughtfulness keeps us all going and the beauty of our garden feeds all our souls.

Thank you to the garden owners, allotment holders, and Howth Sutton Horticultural Society members who helped make the open garden charity weekend (21st and 22nd June) in aid of St. Francis Hospice, Raheny such a success. A total of 4540euro was raised for St. Francis Hospice and 976euro for Value Added in Africa. The gardens were Conall O’Caoimh’s garden “Ardan”, The Jeffrey’s garden and Howth Allotments.
Here are a few pictures taken in Janet and David Jeffrey’s garden during the Open Garden weekend. The sun shone non stop for the entire time, so conditions were ideal for our many visitors to relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
