Garthamlock & Craigend Community Gardening Group
The Garthamlock and Craigend Community Garden volunteering group are tackling climate change and contributing to a green recovery thanks to the creation of the Community Garden which is helping reduce local carbon emissions through Community Growing, horticulture, greenspace conservation and climate change education. The Community Garden is located on land owned by Garthamlock and Craigend Parish Church. The garden is for all community use.
The Garthamlock and Craigend Community garden was created following funding from the church and via a grant from the Scottish Government’s Community Climate Asset Fund (CCAF) in January 2021. The garden is used by a very small group of volunteers from Garthamlock & Craigend. We have welcomed individuals and groups from around the community to the garden to grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers in the raised beds and polytunnel. Please follow the Facebook page @gaccgg for information or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Facebook page gives updates about how things are progressing and there are photos and videos of what we are growing. We are keen to have new members join our community garden volunteers so please get in touch if you would like to grow with us or pop along when the garden is open. The garden is behind a locked gate but please do not let that put you off enquiring. The gate is locked for security and safety but anyone wishing to access the garden can request a key. There are toilet facilities and drinking water available when the church building is open. At any other times the garden can be accessed by your key but there may be no other persons on site and the church may be closed. The garden is monitored by CCTV for security and safety. There is no cost involved in using the garden or facilities at the church, all we ask that you help us maintain the resource by carrying out small tasks like de-weeding / watering etc
