About Castlebank Horticultural Centre

At Castlebank Horticultural Centre, we strive to promote the principles of inclusivity for all,

respect for the environment and all living things within it, expanding our knowledge about the

natural world, and promoting the physical and mental health benefits of adopting a balanced

lifestyle through engagement with the natural world around us.

The first phase of Castlebank Horticultural Centre, the growing compound opened in May 2014. The second phase, the Community Hub, opened in November 2018 and is now home to a full-time Educational Gardener and a year-long programme of educational activities, volunteering opportunities and community events. Rooms at the centre are also available for hire for business, community and personal lets. The centre is managed by Lanark Community Development Trust. Proceeds from the centre’s activities and hires are returned to the Development Trust to reinvest in the centre, and the ongoing development and maintenance of the Castlebank Park gardens. Contact the centre on 01555 728 329 / info@lanarktrust.co.uk

Hello, Spring! Free guided walk & clean up

Spring is in the air! Join us on Saturday 7th March for the first of our seasonal guided walks of Castlebank Park. The walk will be led by Stuart Ritchie, Educational Gardener at Castlebank Horticultural Centre. Stuart will point out the first signs of spring, discuss interesting plants, the natural environment and the work of the volunteers in regenerating the park's formal gardens.

As part of the Keep Britain Tidy campaign in March, during the walk we will help clean-up the park by removing any rubbish we come across (this is voluntary and you don't have to participate if you do not wish to). #GBSPRINGCLEAN

Meeting point: Castlebank Horticultural Centre (top of the grassy hill)
Meeting time: 11.20am (Walk will start at 11.30am and last around an hour)
After the walk, tea & coffee will be served at the Horticultural Centre where you can also ask Stuart any questions about your own gardening projects - donations are welcome to support the Development Trust in the ongoing regeneration and maintenance of the park's gardens.

Open to all ages. Not suitable for wheelchairs or individuals with significant mobility issues. Please dress appropriately for all potential Scottish weathers. The walk will go ahead if it is raining and will only be cancelled in very adverse weather conditions.

Places are limited. To reserve places, please email info@lanarktrust.co.uk or call 01555 728 329
