Keelings getting ready to Bloom in the park

One of Fingal's best know food companies, Keelings will have a strong presence at the Bloom Festival in the Phoenix Park this year and will also be taking the opportunity to raise awareness and money for a very worthy charity.

Keelings, the 100% Irish family owned company and experts in fresh produce, return to Bord Bia's Bloom this June Bank Holiday Weekend.

Keelings have presented at Bloom since 2006, and for the second consecutive year, they will raise funds for charity partner, ISPCC Childline.

The well-known 'Love to Grow' tunnel will be transformed into 'Keelings Sensory Symphony' tunnel. Keelings teamed up with Murphy + Sheanon, landscape architecture and horticultural practice, to design a tunnel that is an inspirational experience of fun and exploration through taste, smell, touch, sound and sight.

Our senses create multi-sensory memories, which we hold on to as we wander through life's meandering path, and the more senses we engage, the richer the experience.

Acknowledging the importance of bees, butterflies and other insect populations in the growth of quality berries, the tunnel will include 'Friends from the Farm', together with plants, patterns and colour palettes to create the optimal growing environment.

A magical addition this year includes the Keelings ISPCC Fairy Tree.

Each donation, will gift a ribbon on the Keelings magical Fairy Tree, inspiring every child's positive intention!

Keelings' experts will also be on hand to offer useful tips, with a daily schedule of growing workshops throughout the Bank Holiday Weekend and families will also be invited to create nectar rich seed bombs to throw or sow in their own family garden.

Juicy Keelings Strawberries will be available to sample, and to purchase, at the Keelings stand all weekend at Bloom.

ISPCC Childline volunteers will be at the Keelings stand throughout the weekend to collect donations.
