Bug Buddies - Drop in session

Calling all budding gardeners aged 7 to 12, we have a workshop just for you.

Join our eco-gardener in residence, Polly Rowley-Sams for an eco-craft workshop as part of the Richmond Barracks May Fair. During this workshop we will learn all about the different ways we can welcome more insects and wildlife into our gardens. Then we will use lots of different recycled materials to make our very own mini bug hotels.

As this is an outdoor activity please dress appropriately and wear clothing you don’t mind getting dirty. A parent or guardian must stay onsite for the duration of the workshop.

There is no need to book a place for this workshop, all are welcome to drop in and join the fun! 

If you have any questions about this drop in session please don't hesitate to contact us at

Culture Connects @ Richmond Barracks 

This workshop is part of our Culture Connects @ Richmond Barracks programme. Culture Connects is a year-round programme that invites people in Dublin to try out new things. We offer ways for people to make and create together, to share ideas and connect through culture and conversation.

The workshops cover a wide range of cultural activities from home growing to history, painting to poetry, dancing to drawing and so much more. We design sessions so that you can join one workshop or come for several, depending on your preference. Please keep an eye on our website or sign up to our newsletter for regular updates
