Culbokie Community Garden and Polytunnel


The Community Garden and polytunnel are just down the hill from the Culbokie Inn at Netherton Farm.

Individual growing plots are now available with shared use of the Polytunnel. There are tools and a stock of seeds for use by all gardeners.

Originally set up with the support of TBI and the presence of Agric, a TBI member, as on-site gardener, now there is no longer such a direct connection and the relationship with TBI is more informal e.g. this year the garden will be used for some TBI Grow North sessions.

If you are interested in cultivating a plot please phone Lesley on 01349 877224.


Children's Gardening at Netherton  2016

On the 10th May 2016 a children's gardening time was started at Netherton with six children from the P6/7 class at Culbokie Primary.  On the first day, which was one of the first hot days of the year, potatoes were planted and the pigs were introduced to the children (or is it the other way round?).

The following week, which was cool and drizzly, was spent mainly in the polytunnel sowing seeds of french beans and sunflowers, and making paper pots for nasturtium seeds.






Over the following weeks the children made a bug hotel and helped to plant
cabbages, leeks, peas and bean plants as well as helping with watering and
weeding.  In September Lydia came to harvest her potatoes with mum and her
younger brother.
