Polbeth and West Calder Community Garden
Situated on old Polbeth Market Garden site. The group's aim is to provide an opportunity for local people and community groups to grow fruit and vegetables and also take part in other outdoor leisure activities.
July 2013 - lease signed. Path creation happening. Green Gym happening once a week. Bag packing funding achieved. regular corporate groups through Chris Peach. Lots of woodland potential and possible work with John Muir Award. Also long term plans for building investment and refurbishment and pond project. Currently more conservation potential than garden but will change over time. Good social events around Halloween etc. Have no trouble fundraising but want to keep things small scale and voluntary.
Please contact the project for more details of location and project proposal.
On the south side of the A71 between West Calder and Polbeth
