The  Allotment Garden  and Craft Village

chickensA few years ago, the previous owners, Dave and Diana Muir, transformed a redundant acre of land situated behind the nursery (walk past the main shop entrance and keep going and you’ll find it). From this concept a ‘model allotment’ has been managed for several years to inspire and encourage customers to get the ‘grow your own’ bug and see how easy it is to grow your own food from scratch.

A large part of the allotment garden is now being transformed into a Craft Village (opening Spring 2019) which will be home to a range of independent local business ventures and coopertaives.

Named in memory of Dave Muir, Dave’s Allotment was previously worked on by a group of willing volunteers of all ages who gave up their time in return for a rewarding session in the allotment and the spoils of their labours. We are reopen the allotment area and are looking to recruit new volunteers for the coming months.
