The last week in January has been a busy one for the Development Trust. On Monday and Tuesday we saw two weather extremes in Lanark! Some of our hardy volunteers battled through the snow on Tuesday and made it to the Horticultural Centre. The park looked beautiful in the sunshine and the snow.
Throughout the week it was great to see local businesses showing support for the Discover Lanark BID. There is now less than a month to go until the BID ballot deadline – Thursday 28th February. You can keep up with updates on the Discover Lanark Facebook Page and the Discover Lanark website.
On Thursday I attended a learning visit to Polbeth and West Calder Community Garden, the day was organised by Social Farms and Gardens. It was a really interesting visit learning about the garden’s development, and seeing all of the different activities they offer – from the STICK MAN trail to the magical Fairy Garden.
On Friday we spent a lot of time in the park with our newly appointed Educational Gardener! Stay tuned for details of when they are starting and the various community activities, events and horticultural workshops that will be available soon.
Friday brought along a new month! In February at Castlebank Horticultural Centre we are hosting an ESTEEM Clydesdale talk on Thursday 7th and a Green Cleaning Workshop with ‘Fresh Green Clean’ on Saturday 23rd from 1-3pm.
