gardening-331986_640Now that the clocks have changed and (hopefully) the weather is beginning to improve, why not come along to our new weekly volunteer sessions at the Kingsway Court Community Garden and help develop the garden?

The garden has 30 raised beds which are being used by local residents to grow their own vegetables and flowers, and is run by Kingsway Court Health & Wellbeing Centre in partnership with the Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust.

Join in with our volunteer sessions as a great way of learning new skills, meeting new people and getting outdoors!

Update – Jul 2015 – sessions will be on Tue 7 Jul (10.30-1.30) and then on Wednesday afternoons for the rest of the summer – Wed 15, 22, 29 Jul and Wed 5 and 12 Aug – from 1-4pm

Staff and volunteers have already made great progress building raised beds to re-home the fruit trees which were previously planted in the ground – check out how they’ve got on:Raised beds

The community garden sessions run every Tuesday from 10.30 am til 1.30pm, in the Community Garden at Block 50 Kingsway Court, and are a great way to gain practical gardening experience, keep fit and play a vital part in the maintenance and development of this much-loved community resource.

No experience is necessary – just an interest in gardening and a love of fresh air! All special equipment will be provided (gloves, tools etc). Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit muddy, and wrap up warm in case it’s a cold day.

If you’re interested why not drop in on Tuesday? Or to find out more about the community garden sessions and many other volunteering opportunities across the local area get in touch with Katherine on katherine@dumbartonroad.com or 07943 080 593.
