Community Garden News

From Dale Meegan:

We are looking forward to welcoming Gill Blease to West Ardnamurchan at the end of the month to take over running the Community Garden. Gill comes to us from North Yorkshire where she has been working in a kitchen garden, but she has had various horticultural roles over the years and is enthusiastic about community gardens.

She has already been here shifting seaweed onto the vegetable beds with her partner David and local volunteers, and has experienced the full range of winter weather. Not deterred she will be here full time from 24 February. She hopes to be producing vegetables in the early summer for sale in the Garden Shop and via vegetable bags.

Gill is also an illustrator and is looking forward to living in this beautiful and inspiring landscape.

The Community Garden now has its own website -

As in previous years, if anyone is interested in renting an outdoor raised bed or a growing bed in the polytunnel, or just coming along to a volunteer session in the spring, please contact Dale Meegan (Secretary) on 01972 510 322 or
