We have regular seasonal activities throughout the year, although being mostly concerned with planting, summer is the busiest time! In winter we make Hollyballs and wreaths in time for Christmas, and have stalls at the Advent Fayre. We have summer plants in the tubs and hanging baskets in time for the Marches, with our Plant Sale at the beginning of June.
Anyone can come along and help out with the activities. We would love to see new faces as well as the familiar faces.

***** HELP REQUIRED *****
Preparation for New St. Michael's Statue
Saturday 21st March 10am at Low Port
Hit Squad to clear the beds at Low Port - As some large plants are involved some muscle power is required. There will also be the need to pot up some of the plants for re-use therefore useful to bring a trowel as well as gloves and kneeler pads.
Planting At Black Bitch Statue
The intended plants for the bed to the west of the Black Bitch sculpture have been selected. Some may not be available so alternatives may have to be used.
Click here for details of the plants chosen.
Following on from last year’s very successful Sunflower Competition, we have decided that this year’s competition will have two categories: Vegetables and Flowers. As last year, we will have separate categories for different children’s age groups and for adult entries.
See the flyer here for more details.
What's been happening recently?
A litter pick was carried out at the Vennel working around the buildings, car park and loch side.
As can be seen from the photographs, a huge amount of litter was collected.
Well done to all who turned up to help.
