The community garden is in the grounds of Belhaven Hospital, on the outskirts of Dunbar. It's being developed with the involvement of various local groups, principally local sustainability group Sustaining Dunbar (http://sustainingdunbar.org/) and The Ridge (http://the-ridge.org.uk/). The Ridge are a group set up to promote and provide training in rural skills and food, and so it was agreed that we'd do this project as a joint practical day and training workshop.
The community garden covers a fairly large site, with various different areas under development - an orchard, areas for production of crops (both outdoors and in a polytunnel), and a scenic area which will be visible from the hospital itself. We were working in the sensory garden, which will be planted with scented and tactile plants. It's a circular design, and it's designed to be (eventually) wheelchair accessible
We had four volunteers from the branch (Dave, Alan, Emma - an artist currently based on Skye but who just happened to be in Dunbar this week working, by coincidence, with the North Light project - and myself), and three trainees (Kate from Ridge, local traditional wall-builder and repairer Peter, and Anna, a local artist with an interest in stone). The training was done by Richard, and once he'd given the trainees an introductory talk on the principals of building in dry stone, we got to work. By lunchtime, the first course was up all round, and a start had been made on the next level.
