The Ardentinny Community Trust team, supported by enthusiastic volunteers, had the factor 30 out over the weekend as the temperatures soared in Glenfinart Walled Garden. These dedicated folks are bringing new life to the Victorian garden which had, until its acquisition by the Trust in 2012, remained largely neglected over many years. The energy expended over the past weeks and months has been impressive: polytunnel completed; paths created; sheds erected; an orchard established; and vegetables and flowers planted.
Support from local businesses and individuals has been exceptional. Indeed, this last weekend local firm West Coast Tool & Hire provided the Trust with the loan of a digger and motorised barrow, free of charge. This enabled designated digger driver, David and hand barrow “operative”, Lynn to make a major impression on the circular Beechgrove Garden area of the project which is due to be completed and filmed at the end of July. Included below is the ambitious garden design created by Lynn Harris.
