A community focused horticulture programme in Benbecula, which benefits people across the Uists, is now live on MyParkScotland and needs your support to thrive and grow.

Tagsa Uibhist Community Garden on Benbecula provides a safe and welcoming garden environment for volunteer adults to grow fruit and vegetables, which are then made available to the island community for purchase. The community can also buy bedding plants, shrubs and trees from the project.  The on-site food bank accesses the locally-grown products for distribution amongst their clients, and the project supports the islands’ primary schools’ Gardening Clubs. The role of the site garden is to provide a therapeutic environment for the vulnerable adults supported by Tagsa, as well as individuals with other challenges (including physical), allowing them an escape from otherwise challenging life conditions.

Tagsa Uibhist are using MyParkScotland to crowdfund for staff, development of the garden and to stabilise the garden’s future. Find out more or donate here:
