Sustainment Garden


Actions to inspire and provoke cultural attitudes and behaviours. 

Sustainment Experiments:  The Garden:

Made during the Covid lockdown, Deirdre used her garden to experiment with making and planting raised beds, and a greenhouse from recycled windows. A  sign, SUSTAINMENT, made from the leftover wood from a forest visited the previous month as part of her project for Forest Culture, Tangled Web was exhibited as part of Lismore Castle Arts’  Stories From Lismore and Beyond. This serendipity marks the rootedness of sustainment, how a process of enquiry in one project feeds the next and in society, how the past and present becomes our raw materials for the future.


Experiments supported by an Arts Council of Ireland COVID-19 Crises Response Award
