From May onwards the team at Cullerne Gardens here at the Findhorn Foundation will run a series of Covid-safe workshops with groups from the local Moray area. We’re warmly inviting you to join us!
Cullerne is a very special place. The gardens cover seven acres of land on Findhorn Bay, and they’re cared for using organic, biodynamic and permaculture methods. That means no chemicals, earth care, fair share and people care.
We produce organic vegetables, flowers, plants and soft fruit, that serve our campus kitchen as well as local shops and the cafe. By creating a local, sustainable food supply in the Moray area, we hope to reduce plastic waste in the form of packaging.
We’re passionate about Scottish food sustainability and that everybody can grow.
One of our programmes is the Findhorn Bay Care Farm Project, where local adults with learning disabilities, autism and Asperger’s join us in the gardens. Along the way they gain confidence, new skills, exercise, fresh air and, importantly, new friends.
In partnership with Action for children, we successfully ran a youth empowerment programme to serve young people who did not have a positive destination after leaving school.
We have experience in tailoring and designing workshops to meet the particular needs of specific groups. Our trained staff can offer fun, family-friendly, hands-on, experiential learning sessions on how to grow your own healthy food.
‘We have resources that can be shared far more with our local communities,’ says Jewels Kinnair, manager of Cullerne Gardens. ‘Local partnership is a conversation that belongs to all of us. There are so many possibilities! We’re open to ideas and suggestions, so please feel very welcome to just come and talk to us.’
If you know of a group or individuals in the Moray area who might benefit from participating in outdoor activities, please get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you. Email [email protected]
