Our new addition to the Growers Hub and BSCC this year was Sarah, our Community Gardener.

Sarah was funded through the Highland Council Hero scheme – a brilliant initiative which supported BSCC as employers and Sarah, as an employee.

The community raised the rest of the funds needed for the post with funding coming from the Broadford and Strath Community Council, Broadford Primary Parent Council, Ward Discretionary Fund, Camping Skye and even some funds from the bees in Breakish (thanks to Liz for that). Sarah has been working all over, from the community growing polytunnel, path network, community garden, school garden and helping with replanting the village planters.

Thanks to Sarah for all her hard work! We are hoping to keep her in post next year too so lots more fundraising needed.
