Lynn Kerr, Anna Williamson and Ian from the Glenfinart Walled Garden Ardentinny came into the Argyll street studio to bring listeners up to date with the Walled Garden project and explained how listeners could still be part of it by volunteering to help out in all manner of ways.
Volunteers from Ardentinny Community Trust have been out and about locally spreading the word and recently manned a display at the Small Acorns event at Hunters Quay Holiday Village, Dunoon.
The stall, which included the sale of garden and local produce, also featured information on Glenfinart Walled Garden and photographs of the new Beechgrove Sensory Garden.
Powerpoint presentations, created by Lynn, provided visitors with a historical background to the garden and a second presentation aimed at the younger visitor, offered children an insight into the exciting Kids’ area within the Walled Garden.
