Box Scheme

Our box scheme was orginally called "OOOOBY" or Out of Our Own Back Yard (the name was inspired by a project in New Zealand) is a project focused on developing a local affordable, healthy food resource. Since 2017 we have partnered with Carraignamuc Cottage box scheme. 

OOOOBY has developed into a local group focused on local food education made up of volunteers that support local producers and customers with adminstration support from Carraig Dúlra and workers from the County Wicklow Partnership Tús programme.

Carraig Dúlra also runs a bullk-buying group for whole food or organic products not available localally or in Ireland. These can be ordered online and pick up together or seperately from the vegetable box.
