Community planting

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:
