Community Garden Open Days
Saturday 27th August : 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
An event every month that begins at 1:30 pm on day Last of the month, happening 6 times
Find out about our community garden and orchard at our monthly Community Garden Open Day.
On the 30th of July from 12:30 – 3:30pm, Lang Toun Cycles’ Dr Bike will be at our open day!
At Dr Bike sessions, experienced mechanics check everything on your cycle from wheels, brakes, gears and tyre pressure to lights, racks, pedals, saddles and more. Any minor adjustments we can make, we do there and then. This may include free replacement of minor wear and tear components where possible.
For more complicated repairs that we can’t fix on site, we will let you know exactly what needs to be done and give you a rough idea of what it should cost at a bike shop.
A “Dr Bike health report” will be supplied to you afterwards.
If you interested in learning more about local gardening and growing food or want to come along for a walk through the garden and orchard for ideas, inspiration and to enjoy the outdoors, come along to our monthly open days. No need to book, just drop in!
Our gardeners and volunteers will be on site to show you around and answer any questions. We will be open one day each month throughout the growing season to show you what goes on. If you are interested in getting more involved we can share our events, workshops and volunteering opportunities.
All ages and abilities welcome and please wear suitable outdoor clothing. Our open days are free to attend.
How to get there
The gates to the garden are located at the Dysart end of Ravenscraig park; on the corner of Dysart Road and West Quality Street. You will see the opening into Ravenscraig Park. Just next to this are two green metal gates beside a red brick wall and a sign ‘Ravenscraig Walled Garden’ – that is the entrance to our garden. Go through the green gates and follow the path around to your right past the car park. Keep to the right and you will see a big space with lots of allotments. If you look to the left, you will see a green ‘cabin’ with a polytunnel and raised beds. That is our base.
