Spring update on the Community Garden

romhc Saturday, 9 April 2022

The Community Garden now has a poly tunnel! Thanks to everyone who contributed to the poly tunnel fundraising drive. Seed sowing is now in full swing with the full benefits of a light sheltered place for them to germinate. The poly tunnel also provides a comfortable inside place to work on those days when winter still has us in its grip (like this last week). The two gardeners, Faith and Lorraine, are hosting workshops to help and encourage people to garden as well as other events to bring folk into the garden. Now that spring is bursting forth, the garden becomes a really delightful place to visit, sit a while and listen to the river and all the birdsong that fills the shrubs and trees lining its banks. We hope that visitors to the museum will take a detour around the garden and enjoy all it has to offer.

On the last Saturday in May the Community Garden will host a plant swap when gardeners can bring any surplus plants they have and then anyone can come and take what they need. This has worked very well in previous years with gardeners being very generous with their donations so that everyone has been able to find plenty to take away.

The Ross of Mull is an extraordinary microcosm of all that draws visitors to the Hebridean Islands. The scenery, as you travel along the single-track road from the ferry at Craignure is breath-taking. You experience in the many walks in the area a true sense of wilderness; the secret bays with their beaches of silvery sand, the abundance of wildlife and the innumerable marks on the landscape of the lives of past generations and communities long gone. The Ross of Mull is a compelling place for anyone fascinated by history and the ancient way of life of the Gaelic people.
