Greener Kirkcaldy and Fife Diet are planning a big event on Sunday 9th September, at Dysart Community Hall and Ravenscraig Walled Garden (just next to each other).
The event is a collaboration between Greener Kirkcaldy and Fife Diet that combines Fife’s Blasda and the opening / launch of the Ravenscraig Walled Garden project starting at 11am in the community hall.
The event will include a workshop by Greenspace Scotland, a celebratory lunch with produce from the new EATS (Edible and Tasty Spaces) edible border in Kirkcaldy (pictured, above) and a lot more.
Ravenscraig Walled Community Garden (Dysart Road) will be open to the public 12 – 4.00 on Sunday 9th Sept, as part of Doors Open Day. Suzy Goodsir from Greener Kirkcaldy:
Come and see our first season’s growing in the Walled Garden. Once it serviced Dysart House, then was a major Council facility for training and producing plants for public places, but in February this year the walled garden re-opened as a local community growing resource with allotments, community orchard, training area, willow and wildlife area. A community sensory garden is planned as well as restoration of the 19th century Victorian greenhouse.
Parking is restricted – if possible please walk in.
• Guided Tours of the Gardens
• Chat to plot-holders about their allotments
• Kids activities – sowing wildflowers in the orchard; storytelling
• Workshops – ‘ Bottle the Glut’ and others – in the training area
Other groups and projects from around Fife have also been invited to take part, more details shortly. More details soon.
