Whorterbank Tattie Patch

Whorterbank Tattie Patch
2017 Certificate Level 5 - Outstanding

The Tattie Patch was just a rough, weedy space in a severely deprived part of Dundee. OPFS runs a kids’ club there and the children wanted to grow some vegetables, so the group dug it over, put in a path and planted it up. The tattie harvest was so good it was featured on the STV news, and lots of local people got some to take home. The children also grew peas, carrots, onions, beans and oats! The project is expanding into the play park and shrub beds this year, with fruit trees and bushes.
