Summer Developments at the Community Garden

From Dale Meegan:
After a slow start to the growing season things are now flourishing. ‘Veg Bags’ are once again available to suit different requirements, and the shop (opposite the Sonachan Hotel) is well stocked. So if you want a range of fresh, local, organically grown vegetables call in at our Garden Stall or contact us about a ‘Veg Bag’.

Volunteers help to keep the garden running, and this summer we are getting together on one Monday a month between 11am and 2pm, to work together on a range of tasks, (and to socialise!). The next Volunteer Day is Monday July 6th. Everyone is welcome. Volunteers are welcome on other Mondays but this day allows us to focus as a group on some planned activities.

We also still have some plots available to rent for anyone wishing to have their own corner to grow fruit and vegetables.

You may have noticed that there will be three dates in July and August when the Community Garden under Anna’s leadership will be putting on Garden Sessions for the whole family. These include games, growing, harvesting and cooking on an open fire. The cost is £5 for children (and adults) – children must be accompanied by an adult. Under 5s are free and families get a special price of £12.50.

Finally, you may know that Anna and Hanno who have so ably run the garden for the past few years are moving to take on a croft on Skye later this year so we will be looking for new growers to run the garden. If anyone is interested in finding out more please contact Kirstie Shirra at

For information about veg bags, plots and volunteering please contact Anna and Hanno at or Dale on tel: 01972 510322.
