The Gnomes


This is the story of the Garden Gnomes: three Irish guys who built a small, biologically intensive farm on a disused part of the Dublin City University (DCU) campus in Glasnevin, Dublin. It's about the use of land, the agency one has over their life, and the role of community in urban areas.

The Garden Gnomes are: Martin Matthews, Jason Maguire and Shane Matthews.
