This case study was created as part of the Clackmannanshire wide Developing a Local Food Growing Strategy project #GRowClacks. It was delivered in partnership with Clackmannanshire Council and funded by the CSGN Development Fund.

The case study is part of a series of four case studies showcasing community growing already happening in Clackmannanshire aimed at spreading the word and inspiring others to get involved.

The garden is part of the activities Adult Care Services in Clackmannanshire Council offers its service users. The garden moved to its current site in 2016 and before that it was at the Glenochil site in Menstrie next to the derelict Council plant nursery for 9 years. Adult day cares services share the new space with the Secondary School Support Service who supports young people still in School.

The service users asked for an outdoor space and activities and the garden provides opportunities for service users and local community groups to experience practical gardening activities in a protected and supported environment.
