The Community Garden at Todlaw will be designed specifically for our tenants in the area. The garden will be planted in a gap site owned by us within our new Todlaw housing development. The garden will be developed in partnership with Abundant Borders, a community organisation who work to ensure everyone has access to healthy nutritious food.
Abundant Borders have already secured Lottery funding in advance to develop the garden as a training base where people can learn how to grow their own food in a sustainable way. This will encourage home grown produce to be turned into healthy, inexpensive meals.
The Community Garden will include an orchard, raised beds and other facilities to encourage use of the garden by tenants and their families including children of all ages. It is envisaged the garden will evolve and grow as a sustainable dynamic greenspace for the benefit of our tenants and the wider community. Work on the site is due to start in late 2019 or early 2020.
