Girvan’s green gym needs you

Girvan Community Garden is looking for volunteers to help create a garden for patients and visitors as part of its new Green Gym sessions.

Members will be there every Thursday from 11am. No experience is necessary as the experts will be on hand to help all volunteers.

Projects include planting up the raised bed, creating extra growing spaces with containers and generally enhancing the area to become a pleasant and peaceful place for patients to sit and relax.

If you would like to join this project you must contact the garden in advance.

You can email or call (01465)713439 or (01465)713209 to let them know you are interested.

Alternatively, you can call into the garden just off Knockushan Street. It is open to the public Mondays 1-4pm, Tuesdays 9am-2pm (Green Gym session from 11-2pm), Wednesdays 12-4pm, Saturday 1-4pm and Sundays 1-5pm.

The Green Gym sessions at the Community Hospital will run until March 2015.

The garden would also like to thank Leiths the Bakers for their generous donation of pastry cases recently.
