Behind Knockcushan House, the former Town House which overlooks Girvan's picturesque harbour, there was an neglected garden which once was the Council's plant nursery. Unused for 30 years, it was a mass of sycamore and brambles, but on the positive side, is enclosed by 10ft walls, and faces south. This rescued garden has now become a vibrant, creative space to grow for use by the local community.Lots of excellent ways of community involvement-regular Folk Festival at the beginning of May.
