Starting in 2015, PLANT‘s main focus has been on the Tayport Community Garden project, creating a community growing space where organisations, groups, families and individuals of all abilities can work, learn and socialise.

We aim to bring together volunteers and participants from across our community, with the help from a Volunteer Coordinator.

Thanks to the funding for the Garden, we are now also able to offer a Grow and Learn Award – a structured learning course for adults with additional needs.
