Peebles CAN community garden
Jul 17 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Community Garden

Our community garden is set in the heart of the community, the garden behind Victoria Park Centre in Peebles.

We run weekly volunteer sessions (Tuesday and Friday 10am – 12pm), with people of all ages, and work with service users from Victoria park centre.

We have activities for everyone, no green fingers needed and are always on the lookout for new volunteers to come and work with us, so please do get in touch if you fancy joining us. We’ll provide you with tea/coffee and encourage people to take home some garden produce when available. Activities range from mowing, strimming, planting out seedlings, sowing seeds, and watering, there really is something for everyone. Please email Nichole at nichole@peeblescan.org for more information.

We have lots of wonderful fruit and veggies growing, and enjoy trying to grow some unusual things in this Scottish climate. We have aubergines, cucumbers, tomatoes, pak choi and lots of salad in our polly tunnel, along with courgettes, beans, beetroot, potatoes, spinach, chard, kale, onions, sprouts, garlic, squashes, pumpkins, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, radish, carrots, and leeks, in our outdoor beds. Our produce is used in our Cook Kids cooking sessions and are currently supplying the Tontine Hotel, The Food Foundation, Leaven Deli and Windlestraw Lodge with organic fresh veggies.

Thank you to CCF for supporting this project.

Feis Rois @ Eastgate Theatre
Jul 17 @ 12:30 pm

Five outstanding young Scottish musicians are touring the country performing on the Fèis Rois Ceilidh Trail. Aged 16 to 25, most of them are students studying at some of the country’s leading music schools, including the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. The annual Fèis Rois Ceilidh Trail provides a professional development opportunity. It is a stepping stone between studying and launching a career as a performing artist.

Drop into the Eastgate Café from around 1pm and enjoy the glorious music along with lunch, a coffee and/or cake.
