The first community garden polytunnel is ready to be built!
We’re looking for jigsaw lovers and puzzle solvers to help us build the first of our polytunnels.
The area for the polytunnels is has been levelled and the trenches dug for the rainwater harvesting system. Once the polytunnels have been erected, our Growing Army, who have been growing tomato and pepper plants, can plant these on site.
These are now well grown and will be brought to High Mill and planted in the growing areas. A variety of crops are anticipated such as lettuce, strawberries, sweet peppers, jalapenos and tomatoes. to list only a few. These will be used by the community, surpluses sold, or prepped and frozen by the Carluke Foodbank. Some will also be used in a program of food prep classes/sessions to be led by the Clydesdale Foodbank.
The first polytunnel is being built on Saturday 29th May and Sunday 30th May. The garden will be open from 10am – 2pm.
We look forward to seeing you there!
