A Heart for Duns is actively supporting a local initiative to set up and maintain community planting schemes in the town’s park and streets. The project aims to involve people of all ages in active gardening.
A grant of £7,150 from Awards for All in December 2016 enabled the community planting project team to buy a polytunnel, a shed and various gardening tools.
The short video below shows some of the recent work transforming Duns.
Currently the team is working on planting for the beds in Castle Street / Newtown Street. This planting is being made possible through generous sponsorship totalling £350 from seven local businesses:
Zing Health & Beauty JD Clark & Allan George F White Noel Johnston Opticians Richard Amos Ltd J E Douglas & Sons Ltd Bond Training Ltd
The Duns community planting team is also grateful to the following for funding support:
