Sunday Green Gym volunteering in West Lothian!

Polbeth and West Calder Community Garden (PWCCG) organise a number of woodland and garden sessions on a weekly basis. Activities are varied and sessions are typically around two hours each.

Woodland tasks include tree planting, thinning and preparing firewood, as well as other larger projects such as making paths around the woodland, creating a bird hide, butterfly area and educational information boards about the things visitors may see in the woodland.

Garden sessions centre around food growing, including working in the polytunnels and outdoor vegetable beds sowing seeds, caring for growing plants, and that all-important harvesting.

Sessions are open to all and new volunteers are always welcome, whether for a single session or regular volunteering. Training and equipment are provided... just drop in and say "Hello"! :)

NOTE: Take a look at the Facebook page to see what we have been up to and details of upcoming open days and events. We will also post on there if any sessions are not going ahead. https://www.facebook.com/Polbeth-and-West-Calder-Community-Garden-SCIO-228759703817523/

Polbeth and West Calder Community Garden SCIO

Polbeth and West Calder Community Garden SCIO is an award-winning Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation. On 28th February 2013 we were awarded charitable status as a SCIO, a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation. In June 2013 we signed a 5-year lease with West Lothian Council to take on the former Polbeth Market Garden site. We recently negotiated a 25 year lease to further develop the site. Our aim is to provide an opportunity for local people, schools and community groups to grow fruit and vegetables and take part in a range of outdoor leisure activities. We are a group working to develop a community garden for everyone from Polbeth and West Calder and the surrounding areas in West Lothian, and we regularly discuss with local people their ideas about how the garden should be used. The project is always developing and new volunteers are always welcome. You can find out more by visiting Polbeth and West Calder Community Garden SCIO on Facebook.
