We want to transform an underused area of land in the centre of Dalrymple, from an area of rough grazing, to a community garden with features that will engage the interest of all ages within the community and provide a pleasant environment in which local people can socialise and come together. The project will create a new greenspace where people can meet within the centre of the village and just a few minutes stroll of the primary school and shops. A design has been prepared to create a community garden with play equipment for young children, social areas for older visitors, a cycle track to develop proficiency and flower beds with plants that are both attractive to pollinators and will enhance the visual aspect of the site. The site will include an awning-covered “performance area” and space where events such as craft sales, or perhaps farmer’s markets, could be staged. Please have a look at the plans for the garden.
Our key partner for this project is Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) to whom we are very grateful for their help and support. We are currently seeking funding for our community garden and will let you know when building work will start. We are hopeful that this will be in 2018.
