Coplaw Street Community Garden

GREAT Gardens

The biggest challenge we face at the moment is the weather which is hampering our efforts to clear and level the site prior to pegging out the various areas of the garden.

Visitor Information

67 Coplaw Street

The site is part training facility and community garden. We are encouraging local schools, residents, groups to enquire about usage once the site is built and fully developed.

Get involved

Volunteering opportunities / Upcoming events

A steering group will shortly be set up from local residents interested in getting involved as volunteers or active users. For further details please contact Eddie Dunlop.
