We aim to offer opportunities for social, educational and recreational activities for the identified group of people living in the local area. In addition, we provide the community with a reliable source of organically grown fruit, vegetables and herbs.
Our team works hard to support the local community
The garden is run by our team of 5 staff which includes a garden manager, a garden development worker, an apprentice gardener and 2 young people on placement through the Community Jobs Scotland employability programme.
We sell our produce at the Shop in the Garden where we have seasonal organically produced fruit and vegetables, a comprehensive range of bedding and garden plants, bulbs and shrubs. At Christmas, we have our popular, handmade holly wreaths and bowls of hyacinths.
The shop is manned by one our young staff and we also have a number of volunteers who help with a variety of tasks at the garden.
