The aim of our community garden is to encourage members of the local community to grow organic fruit and vegetables. Our ethos is to encourage healthy eating, share knowledge about growing food and foster community spirit. The garden is run on co-operative principles with an elected spokes-person. Each member is allocated a raised bed and growing space in our poly-tunnels. Experienced and novice gardeners are welcome to become plot-holders.
Members of the local community who would like to become involved with the Community Garden but who cannot commit to subscribing to a plot are encouraged to join ‘Friends of Cumbrae Community Garden’.
‘Friends’ will be able to use the facilities in the garden, have the option to help out with communal garden jobs, join in with our educational and social events and generally become involved in CCG activities.
We have regular open days, talks, educational events and social get-togethers.
We encourage and welcome visitors to the garden. There is always a group of enthusiastic plot-holders and friends in the Community Garden on Sundays from 12 noon.
Membership application forms are available at the Community Garden Bothy
