Working to maintain and create green and growing spaces for our community.

Our Community Gardener works both in the Growers Hub and across the village to ensure that our green spaces and growing areas are kept in tip-top condition. Although working only one day a week, our gardener is able to ‘achieve a lot with a little’ both through her own energies and by supporting the fantastic work of our volunteers.

The Community Gardener’s role includes supporting our food growing for the Community Fridge; keeping our paths network accessible and attractive; weeding and planting the flower beds and borders in the Broadford ‘s Community Garden and village planters; supporting the garden at Broadford Primary School and maintaining the spaces and equipment at the Growers Hub.

We were delighted to create this new post in 2021 with funding from the Highland Council Hero scheme and generous donations from our local community.

Be sure to say hello when you see our Community Gardener around and about digging, pruning, strimming or weeding – in all weathers!
