Garthamlock and Craigend Parish Church are tackling climate change and contributing to a green recovery thanks to the creation of the Garthamlock and Craigend Community Garden which is helping the Garthamlock and Craigend Communities to reduce local carbon emissions through Community Growing, horticulture, greenspace conservation and climate change education.
The Garthamlock and Craigend Community garden was funded through the Scottish Government’s Community Climate Asset Fund (CCAF) earlier this year with Garthamlock and Craigend Parish Church awarded a CCAF grant totalling £9908.30 in January 2021. Whilst restrictions have limited our activities in the garden this year we are encouraged to see some members of the community already growing produce in the garden that they started from seed in their own homes and in school and helping to care and maintain the fruits, vegetables, plants and orchard already planted in garden. See publications on the page for information about how things are progressing and check out our photos and watch us grow. We are keen to have new members on board as restrictions are eased so please get in touch or pop along when the garden is open, there is no cost involved in becoming a member. When Community member numbers increase the garden can be opened on a more regular basis.
