THE team behind Touch Community Garden have shown their appreciation with a big thank you event for their supporters.

The dear green space in the Dunfermline estate has received a lot of backing over its three years which has helped turn it into the impressive place it is today.

BAM Construction, who have been building the new high schools at Halbeath, recently donated a portacabin and helped them install power and water.

Lorna Anderson, one of the garden’s directors, commented: “Between them and Fife Council they all made it work for us, and it has made all the difference because we run children’s clubs during the holidays.

"It gives us somewhere to go.”

The garden has a range of volunteers from different backgrounds who help out, including helpers who are Polish, Ukrainian and Moldovan.

“We have got a couple of guys who are classed as homeless in temporary accommodation, but they have been instrumental in keeping us going,” Lorna added.

For their efforts, the community garden was even shortlisted for a Fife Voluntary Award for social inclusion.

Also invited along to the event were local councillors, the Provost of Fife Jim Leishman, and everyone who donated seating and painting, and the local joiners who made benches.

The garden is open to everyone, so anyone can enjoy the herb garden, picnic benches, meadow and orchard. 

Lisa Murray, another director, told the Press: “It’s been brilliant for everyone’s mental health, it really has. It’s a really nice place to spend time.
