Community Payback Team making a difference at Walled Garden

Over the past year Dunoon’s Community Payback Team has been contributing to the success of Glenfinart Walled Garden.

Including the regular strimming, weeding, planting, compost collection and general garden maintenance, the Community Payback team, under the direction of supervisor John Gilchrist, has also been laying paths with road *planings  and gravel provided by Argyll & Bute Council Roads Department.

Such is the success of the contribution they have made to the garden, this year the team will be allocated a plot to enable them to grow their own produce. They will also receive training from Glenfinart Walled Garden’s volunteers’ coordinator and gardener, Glyn Topliss.
