National Gardening Week 2012 runs from 16th to 22nd April and is co-ordinated by the Royal Horticultural Society to get the nation growing and celebrate everything about gardens and gardening. Thousands of people across the country are coming together and getting involved to enjoy, share and celebrate everything about gardens and gardening.
To mark the occasion, Dennistoun Diggers will be opening their community garden throughout the week for people to come and visit and find out more about their space. Have a nosey, offer advice, chat about Guerilla Gardening, sow seeds, pot on, prune, weed… even turn the compost heap if you so desire!
Everyone is invited: fellow gardeners, people new to gardening, those of you wanting to learn more or just anyone who want to meet people in the community. All ages welcome! Gardening is life-enhancing; it creates beautiful spaces and brings communities together, but best of all it’s fun.
Whether you just want to see the garden, chat to fellow gardeners, or get your hands dirty, the Dennistoun Diggers will be there at the following times:
- Monday 16th, Wednesday 18th, Thursday 19th, and Friday 20th April, from 6pm to 7pm.
- Saturday 21st April, from 10am to 12 noon.
- Sunday 22nd April, 2pm to 4pm.
The garden is located at 42-44 Circus Drive, Dennistoun, G31 2JE (behind the main building – walk around the back and all will be revealed!
