Back in Spring 2018 Bryan Hall was setting up for our pensioners group & had been talking to someone regarding growing vegetables, Paul had overheard this conversation & asked Bryan if it was possible to create something near the front door of the centre in an un-used grass area. It's been a tremendous journey, with Bryan creating something wonderful.
Stage By Stage
Our garden is on a journey from being an empty area of grass, to the amazing focal area of the centre and grounds that it is today. May 2018 to July 2021. Enjoy the slide-show and photos of our progress.
Spending time in the Garden
The community garden has brought many of us together in the ways we use it from, volunteers doing a spot of gardening to picnics for the kids, Locals eating their peggy's purchases, to garden stalls, One Seed Forward like to have a free seedling drive with us once a year and also we have held some kids competitions in the garden our last one was a stone painting competition. Having a small garden space really does bring people together and this is what a community centre is all about.

Things We Have Grown
The Garden Over The Winter Months
Even in the winter months there is still a lot of greenery and plants growing, however with the short days we do not get much daylight to appreciate them. So we thought it would be a nice touch to light up the trees and fencing to show the garden in a different light. We all thought it worked very nicely! What did you think?
NEW YEAR 2021 Start of the year has not been what we had all hoped for, another lock down more hardship through out Aberdeen, Uk and the world due to Covid. However we all have hope that very soon we will be back to some sort of normality. To keep things going we have had a seed potato project In March and a seed tray project in April to get people involved in. 80 Crab apple and blackthorn trees have been planted around the grounds and the garden is starting to bloom with spring colours.
