Learn to Grow in Barra

barra1The Barra and Vatersay Agricultural and Horticultural Association last year developed and piloted a garden starter pack, which gave people step by step instructions on how to grow fresh, affordable fruit and vegetables.

It was extremely well received and so, therefore, it is to be further developed and the packs made available to the most vulnerable groups in the community – single parents and those on a low income. The packs will be accompanied by ‘learning to grow’ workshops to help people get maximum benefit from the packs.
