Tayview Community Garden
Tayview Community Garden is a plot of land run by local residents, and voluntary and statutory organisations.The garden was set up as there was a deserted space which the local residents and organisations felt could be used for better use. The local council then stepped in and made this happen. The garden was split into smaller plots, which are individually maintained.
The purpose of this garden is to bring the community together, develop skills and confidence for vulnerable and isolated individuals, and create a sense of belonging. The food grown will be shared amongst the members and organisations, as well as donated to causes in need. Not only will fruit, vegetables and flowers be grown, but an outdoor art space will be created, giving a voice to people.
