The Belhaven NHS Garden

Organisation : Sustaining Dunbar
Grant Amount : £ 35,000

We are creating a community garden with flowers, shrubs and food growing areas. We plan to generate a sustainable income in the long term and will provide jobs, training and volunteering opportunities.We will turn a disused area of scrubland into a biodiverse garden with plants, shrubs, trees suitable for our climate, supplemented by a wild flower garden, therapeutic plants, polytunnel and raised beds, bees and water features. The garden will provide a beautiful and productive environment to be enjoyed and provide a refuge for staff visitors, patients, trainees, volunteers and the local community, helping with their well being.
