We now have some very keen gardeners from Primary 4 and 5 eating our produce and doing some fine garden work every Friday Afternoon. Enjoy the pictures. When the fog and minus temperatures disappear today I might tidy my own garden.


Education Scotland has introduced a new initiative named Developing the Young Workforce. Sandy Thomson has been nominated for the role he has played in this.

Some gentle help required

[04/02/16]   As the grass starts to grow and all the nasty weeding is nearly complete we are looking for a few more volunteers to help with maintenance and watering. You could even have a small plot of your own if you wish. The project goes from strength to strength and the work involved is not to tough. It would be great to hear from you. Call 07799 640149 if you can spare the odd hour here and there.


Visit the community garden in the next two weeks to see the Spring Bulbs

[03/25/16]   We were very lucky to get wood from Balfour Beattie when they were building the new power line. We have recycled this wood and are running short. If you have any old wood panels, fence posts or any timber we can use please get in touch or leave it at the Community Garden Gate. Why don't you go and have a look at all the spring flowers.


Today the S5's were treated to a visit to A. Brewsters Egg Farm at Rotmell.Now they need a 500 word write up about their visit.
