Volunteer sessions at Ravenscraig Community Orchard
Calling all Kirkcaldy gardeners…
Would you like to help develop our community orchard in Ravenscraig Walled Garden? We always welcome new volunteers and hold regular volunteer sessions at the orchard. These are on a drop-in basis so don’t feel you need to commit to the full session, every little helps!
- Every Thursday 10am – 1pm
- The last Saturday of each month, 1:30 – 3:30
The volunteers are currently planting fruit trees, helping to develop our training allotment, and carrying out biodiversity surveys and improvements at the site. We offer training and support to the volunteers – no gardening experience is necessary, but skilled gardeners are very welcome!
Just come along to the Walled Garden – the entrance is a blue gate near the junction of Dysart Road and West Quality Street (see map). If you can’t find us, call 07583 275241 for directions.
There will be a short induction at the start of each session for anyone who hasn’t been before. Please read the guidelines on what to expect at the site too – Ravenscraig orchard – Volunteer guidelines (PDF file, 31 KB).
If you’d like to be involved in other ways, keep an eye on our website for details of the progress. We’re also keen to hear from anyone who has any knowledge of the history of the site – we’re uncovering some interesting finds and would love to know what they might be from.
If you have any questions please get in touch!
