Community Gardeners

  • VO84850


Description

To raise awareness of the effects of climate change and support the local community to move to a lower carbon lifestyle.

Gardeners needed to help build and grow! Sustainable Kirriemuir are developing gardens and food growing spots across Kirriemuir. Are you a gorilla gardener? A builder? A hodgepodge-r? An Artist? Are you a gardener at heart and want to learn new skills to grow your own at home? Then please get in touch.

We are still at the development/ infrastructure stage so quite a bit of shed building, slab laying, raised bed building, painting and compost moving to begin with, but after that… growing, growing, growing (maybe a bit of weeding too)! Heavy work and light work available. People with ideas about how we can expand in our growing, vertical, indoor, street planters etc are welcome to share and hopefully we can support you in your endeavours.

We are also in the process of putting together a seed library with lots of seed envelopes to stamp and label for distribution. If you have any spare space in your greenhouse in the early spring and could foster some seedlings until we can plant outdoors that would be WONDERFUL.
