Ninewells Community Garden
In 2023, Ninewells Community Garden received Certificates of Recognition in the NatureScot It's Your Neighbourhood Pollinator Friendly Award and our 2023 Health and Wellbeing theme public vote.
Ninewells Community Garden has focused its efforts on the needs of the communities it serves. A small charity working in partnership with voluntary & statutory services, the garden is a place of refuge that promotes healing, an understanding community that makes it easy to share feelings and concerns. They are focused on increasing participation for volunteers experiencing disadvantage as a result of life circumstances and have steadily increased their growing space. People are coming through word of mouth, from local social prescribers and local services. Being active outdoors, learning new skills and contributing to their local community are the major drivers.
