July in the Coupar Angus Community Gardens

What does summer mean to you?

As a gardener it can mean months of abundant harvest, fantastic food, vibrant wildlife and occasionally deep frustration…….. Why can I never grow a good aubergine!!!

As a community garden we are feeling especially blessed!  Have you paid us a visit recently?

Our poly-tunnel is spectacular, our veg delicious and our events always busy… we have lots going on!   Coming up in August we have several Skillshares, a ‘Gardeners and Growers’ coffee morning, a free kids art party and our fantastic Wednesday volunteer nights, come along, garden, get involved… all are invited!

Our community gardens have been partly funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund and we at the gardens are committed to working with the people of Coupar Angus to understand what climate change is, how it is affecting us and how we can meet these changes together as a community.

Talk to us if you have ideas of how we can jointly achieve this, join us as we work towards this common goal.
