ABOUT THE PROJECT
The Hebridean Community Garden is a new horticultural project - jointly run and managed by Clan Macquarrie Community Centre and Galson Estate Trust.
We provide a beautiful and sustainable green space for the North Lewis community. The garden includes two fully kitted-out polycrubs, raised beds, a tool shed, outdoor classroom and sensory garden - plenty of growing space for everyone interested in gardening and growing.

Community gardens provide innumerable benefits to the populations that they serve. The mental and physical gains that people can obtain by gardening in a social setting are now well-documented through academic research and the everyday experiences of community gardeners.
Our vision is for a well-maintained community garden that provides a place for reflection and healing, with a vibrant collection of native plants to support local wildlife and a versatile range of growing spaces to encourage different needs within the Galson Estate community.
We have a long-term vision for this project and are incredibly grateful to our funders - National Lottery, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar – Crown Estate, Western Isles Development Trust, Action Earth, Scotland Loves Local, CalMac Community Fund, The Finnis Scott Foundation, Scottish Salmon Company and Island Communities Fund.
