Get Ireland Growing – Model Project Scoops GIY Award

Get Ireland Growing

Sligo Global Kitchen is a socially engaged arts project, initiated by artist Anna Spearman in partnership with The Model, and those living within the direct provision system in Sligo town and others who share a passion for culinary and cultural diversity.

The Kitchen takes place every second Saturday and involves a diverse group who come together to plan, cook and share a meal in the Model. To date, we have eaten meals prepared by cooks from Swaziland, Congo, Nigeria, Venezuela and Cameroon.

We were delighted to hear from the AIB Get Ireland Growing Fund this week that we have been awarded a fund to allow the group, with the help of interested local gardeners, to develop a kitchen garden on the grounds of The Model.

If you are interested in getting involved please contact Anna Spearman by email:
