Community Gardeners from WHALE Art’s Westburn CAN project were hard at work today planting a crop of potatoes as the project prepares to launch a new term of events and activities.
The potatoes planted at the edge of the community garden by the bus terminus will join the other edible plants already planted which are available to local people.
The Westburn CAN project is funded by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund aims to creatively engage local people in food growing, waste reduction and increasing understanding of carbon emissions. Over the past year the project has invited local people along to weekly drop in sessions which has seen the back of the WHALE Arts Centre transformed into a community garden. The garden provides lots of tasty food and is even decorated with artwork created by artists and local participants.
If you would like to become involved as the project enters its second stage then come along to one of the weekly drop in sessions taking place Mondays and Fridays, 10.30am – 2.30pm at the WHALE Arts Centre.
