The Dornoch Community Garden have received a donation of 420 wild fruit saplings from the Woodland Trust. This hedge, when mature will provide a bountiful resource for wildlife and wild fruit pickers.

This was a community event and a wonderful opportunity for all ages to get involved in planting a tree .  People weree invited to come to the Glebe Field, behind the Meadows Nursing Home on Saturday, 19th November - to help plant a few of the saplings or just to support us. 

Waterproof footwear and warm coats were strongly recommended and hot soup and rolls were be provided.  The work was done in just over 2 hours and the new hedge looks very smart . The Community orchard has been strimmed in readiness for planting wildflower seedd early next year.

Community Garden Plots

Following receipt of a grant of £3,000 from the Bank of Scotland Community Fund, DADCA have successfully established a Community Orchard on the Glebe Field in the heart of Dornoch (beyond the Meadows Nursing Home).

Stage 2 of our project for the field has already started by using a £1,000 grant from Highland Council to establish six community garden plots available to rent by people wishing to grow vegetables and take part in organic gardening in general.
With the kind cooperation of our neighbours, the Royal Dornoch Golf Club, DADCA 
has funded the provision of piped water to the plots.
All  the plots are currently let out and a newly formed Garden Plots group is now actively seeking funding for fencing and a storage facility at the site.
For more information about the Garden Plots please email Cliff.beck@hotmail.co.uk or call him on 01862 810033
