The King's Meadow


Big Dig posterTwo new Community Gardens are being set up in Peebles – one jointly by environmental organisation Tweedgreen and mental health charity New Horizons Borders, and the other by Peebles Baptist Church.

Tweedgreen and New Horizons Borders’ “Secret Garden” is hidden away behind the British Heart Foundation shop, on Dean’s Wynd. The garden will be a space for anyone in the community to enjoy, with fruit trees and bushes, herbs, veggies and flowers. The Secret Garden will also be a space for events, barbeques, quiet relaxation, meditation, or afternoon coffee.

Meanwhile on the south side of the river, “The King’s Meadow” is being set up on land owned by the Baptist Church behind the Victoria Park Centre. We hope to get local people involved in developing areas for growing fresh fruit and vegetables, flowers, space for fun and relaxation, and that would be accessible to everyone from school children to pensioners.

Everyone is invited to the launch of both gardens over a “Big Dig” weekend on 20th and 21st April. The Secret Garden will be opened on Saturday 20th from 2 – 4pm, where there will be refreshments, face painting, seed planting and swapping, and other activities for children. On Sunday 21st, come to the King’s Meadow between 2 – 4pm, where you can find out more about plans for the garden and how to get involved. There will be refreshments, games and activities for children.
