The South Lanark Community Garden

Who we are

“The South Lanark Community Garden” is our new name and it replaces our former name “The Lanark-Highlands Plan B Community Garden”, we now are a not-for-profit Corporation. We will be continuing our work with Lanark Highlands Plan B and we do not anticipate any changes in our relationship with Plan B. We will continue our work with The Table of Perth as well. The Community Garden is focused on the growing and supplying of fresh produce to those members who participate in the success of the garden, Plan B, the Table and members of the community for their use and further distribution within the larger community.

Our Objectives

The objects or objectives for which we are incorporated are quite widely stated, this to enable us to react quickly to changing needs and developments as they occur. They are as follows

1. The establishment, operation and maintenance of a community garden and ancillary activities to;

a. Assure the security and sovereignty of our community food system,

b. Grow, produce, store and distribute fresh produce, dried and stored produce and prepared food to our members, and the larger community,

c. Develop a community based seed saving, trading and distribution service,

d. Foster the care, and nurturing of a community learning environment,

e. Encourage the personal development of gardens within the community,

f. Encourage community participation in ongoing learning seminars, workshops, hands-on training,

g. Transfer community garden knowledge and information to the community at large,

2. And such other complementary purposes not inconsistent with these objects.

Come join us

The activities of the community garden are sharing in nature as all of our volunteers are welcome to harvest what they need from the garden. We rely heavily on all members of the community for support and there are many ways to volunteer your time and talents to help this operation run smoothly, from starting seedlings in the very early spring, to transplanting, weeding, harvesting, garden maintenance, produce delivery, seed saving, as well as many other ways to contribute.

If you are interested in helping us grow and develop strong community food security, getting to know folks in the community and, enjoying fresh produce please reach out to us! Please contact us : . We do need and appreciate your support.

This project is a real time learning experience and one which is both fascinating and fulfilling at the same time. It helps to develop that sense of community in all of us which is what The South Lanark Community Garden, Plan B and The Table are all about. If you can contribute or are just plain curious please call or text and do come on out to the garden.
