Here are the entries and winners in each category:

Plant Sale 13 May 2023

Saturday 13th May saw our annual plant sale.

We welcomed almost 300 people through the gates, many visiting for the first time.

Our growing team have been busy for several months preparing for the day, and had a wonderful selection of vegetable, fruit and flowering plants for sale. Also on offer, were a variety of goods from our craft team and some home baking from members served with tea, coffee and soft drinks.

After a cloudy start, the sun came out and the temperatures rose.

Thanks to all of the garden volunteers who helped us to raise almost £1,500.

Don’t worry if you missed the sale. There are still lots of plants available to buy in polytunnel 1.

Preparing for the Plant Sale

Our Growing Team have been busy through the spring and now you can see the fruits of their labours.

All sorts of fruit, vegetable and flower plants will be available.

All proceeds will help us to run the garden.

Open Streets Day 2023

On Saturday 22 April 2023, we took part in Stirling Council’s Open Streets Day, which also marked EarthDay.org

We set up our stand in King Street, and provided compostable pots, compost and a variety of seeds.

Lots of children and adults planyed them up and took them away to nuture them.

We had tomato, sunflower, sweetcorn, peas and runner beans available.

The sunflower seeds were especially popular with children.

It also gave us a chance to talk about the garden and promote the upcoming plant sale on Saturday 13th May.
