As part of the Bennochy Community Garden Project, we partner with Growing Kirkcaldy. Growing Kirkcaldy has supported our work with advice, hints and tips. We feel included as part of Kirkcaldy's efforts in enhancing the available green spaces and would like to support the volunteers at Growing Kirkcaldy by including Bennochy Community Garden as part of the route when local and national judging takes place. Bennochy Community Garden is a beautiful peaceful garden which is maintained by many unsung heroes of the congregation. I appeal that you become an unsung hero and if you see a weed over the summer months as you walk through the garden to pull it out.
An initial walk of the route of the judges will take place on the morning of Monday 24th July by members of Growing Kirkcaldy, in preparation for future judging.
Britain in Bloom will be the morning of Monday 7th August.
Beautiful Scotland will be the morning of Tuesday 8th August.
Areas which the judges will be particularly keen to mark on will be; horticulture, environmental responsibility and community engagement.
Bennochy Community Garden will be viewed as contributing to making Kirkcaldy a place that cares about its environment. Growing Kirkcaldy has been entered for Beautiful Scotland's Small City award. As a partner, we should work together in our small corner. If any unsung heroes in the congregation or community would like to be present when the judges come, please contact Louisa Turner, Community Development Worker.
