Community Polytunnel at The Barn

The KoSDT community polytunnel has now been installed although we still have a bit of internal work to do to get it ready for growing.

The Polytunnel is positioned right next to the Free Community Food Larder at The Barn in Ardgay and we hope it won’t be long before it’s producing fresh fruit and veg for the Larder and The Community Food Stop Cafe (once it resumes service as Covid restrictions ease further). KoSDT has also just been awarded support from the Scottish Governments Communities Recovery Fund to develop a community space with a learning shelter behind the tunnel so that we can get the community involved with local growing. We are now looking for some green fingered volunteers to get involved in the establishment of a sustainable community growing project. In time we would also like to develop the garden beside the Bonar Bridge Post Office into another community growing space with raised beds but that will take a little bit of funding so maybe next year. Now the hard work begins…
