Spring 2020
Spring 2020

Saturday April 18th 2020

As you all know Girvan Community Garden has been closed to the public all winter and with the lockdown and subsequent social distancing now in place, it may be sometime before we are able to open the garden to you all again. However, we have been busy during the lockdown and Julie and Jim have been keeping the garden in a well maintained manner so that if and when we do open up again, the garden will not be a jungle!!!

As you can see from the photos there is an abundance of colourful flowers on view, particularly the tulips. Hopefully, and before the summer season finishes, we will be able to re-open again soon. As you can see from the photos, we have been improving our covered spaces.

Funding from the South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership has allowed us to build a covered area next to the compost area. This work is incomplete, due to working restrictions associated with the lockdown, but will resume when the restrictions loosen.

Ayrshire Leader funding has allowed us to buy a new dome and we have laid the frame foundation for the flooring. Again, when the lockdown restrictions begin to ease, we'll lay the floor and build the dome.

We have planted up tatties, onions and strawberries in the outdoor borders and tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers in the poly-tunnel and greenhouse.

Hope the photos remind you of what the garden looks like.

 

 

Stretch Tent

Girvan Community Garden has received funding from Ayrshire Leader to purchase a new waterproof tented cover for use during events. The tent is a Stretch tent and can be used in many different ways. Our team of volunteers gave it an initial pitch at the Harvest Festival and it provided some much needed shelter on what was a very cold day.

 

 

10th Anniversary
10th Anniversary

Saturday June 24th 2017

New and old friends and volunteers celebrated the gardens 10th Anniversary on the 24th of June. We were delighted to see everyone having a great afternoon. Guests were treated to a wonderful buffet feast, cake, complimentary drink and music.

Certificates of appreciation were given to our longest volunteers, Audrey Riddell and Ward Higgins. To mark our 10th anniversary we launched a new logo competition involving 3rd year Girvan Academy pupils. Rachel Roxburgh was our winner and she received a £50 voucher for art materials. Thanks goes to Alec Clark and Etta Auld for their kind words. Later on the garden opened up to the public. We were humbled by the amazing comments that everyone had about the garden and how it has developed over the years. Thanks also go to those who sent cards and gave us donations. Some people couldn't make it to the party but you were all in our thoughts while we raised a glass of bubbly!
