26 August 2023 marked the welcome return of our annual horticultural show. Thanks to Rosa for organising a wonderful day, to everyone who helps with the organising and judging, and to Bailie Cllr Gerry McGarvey for awarding the prizes.
Congratulations to all of our winners
Here are the entries and winners in each category:
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.
Braehead, Broomridge and District Community Development Trust (BBDCDT) have been a community anchor working with Stirling Council to reach people who have needed help with shopping, prescription collection etc during the Covid-19 restrictions.
Leading on from this was the decision to use all available raised beds at the Community Garden to grow fresh fruit and veg to share with garden members, volunteers and the wider community.
A much reduced but dedicated team of Braehead Community Garden members have prepared, planted and tended raised beds with fruit and vegetables to share.
