Castlebank Horticultural Centre

Last week, Stuart, our Educational Gardener, and Sylvia had a busy day in Stirling speaking at the Greenspace Scotland ‘Community urban greenspace workshop’. Telling the story of how the park has been regenerated, the Horticultural Centre’s creation and how we’re now hosting a busy programme of community learning activities, events and workshops

We were also busy in the park. Thanks to a donation from HRH Prince Charles following his visit last summer, the sundial lawn in Castlebank Park will soon feature a labyrinth. A labyrinth is a flat maze design of concentric circles, and ours will have the historic sundial at the centre. Stay tuned as the project progresses over the coming weeks!

We’re busy planning our 2020 programme of workshops, events and activities with booking now open for many of them –  click here to view the current list of What’s On.
