Largs Organic Community Garden
Largs unique Viking themed Community Garden grows flowers and herbs that may have been used for food and healing at the time of the 'Battle of Largs in 1263'. Largs was the last place the Viking Norse fought on the island of Britain (the Isle of Man was part payment). Scotland was an independent country and the group reminds people the Thistle was made Emblematic of the Scottish people after this battle; hardy, resilient, beautiful and seriously barbed if grasped by the unwary! Latin motto "Nemo me impune lacessit". The English translation "Nobody interferes with me with impunity" and this is expressed in broad Scots as "Wha daur meddle wi' me?"
