Community Land Scotland visits the garden

On March 23 2023, delegates from Community Land Scotland (CLS) visited The Hebridean Community Garden - to see our thriving horticultural project!

It was wonderful to share our vision for community growing and partnership development with an organisation that has these ideals at its heart.

Our community polycrubs - set up and run on an allotment-style philosophy was at the heart of the tour. These spaces encapsulate how to empower the community to achieve a thriving green space.

We will be installing a new teaching space and herb garden, amongst many other things.
