Located in the grounds of the Ross of Mull Historical Centre in Bunessan, site clearing began in August 2020 with volunteers of all ages, including local school children, taking their turn to clear willow shrubs and brambles, and plant beautiful natural hedges and fruit cordons.
Project workers and volunteers worked through the winter months to get everything in place for the garden’s first growing season, with the construction of raised beds, compost bins and a potting shed. A tool shed, re-purposed from the local fire brigade, has also been put in place
In the meantime, the garden is providing a playing and learning place for Nature Club, run by the local Ranger Service, and a parent and toddler group, the Little Brambles.
Our next steps include raising funds for a polytunnel.
