Give Peas A Chance 2015
In 2015, 450 teams took the pledge to give peas a chance and grow some of the lovely legumes on their desks at work. This being an inter-company challenge, the competition was intense and the stakes were high – the winning team of growers won a food garden worth €3,000 which they could donate to a charity or community group of their choice. The winning team Optimal Chiropractics donated the garden to Cork Association for Autism in Mogeely.
