Come and help MCCI create a safe and enjoyable garden for the community of Methilhill. If you enjoy being outdoors and have one or two spare hours a week they would love to hear from you. Methilhill Community Children’s Initiative has acquired the lease of a piece of waste ground near Methilhill Primary School. They have transformed it into a walled garden for all the community to use and need help maintaining the garden and all the trees, flowers, herbs and bushes they have planted. Families or friends are welcome to volunteer as a group. Gardening knowledge would be an advantage but it’s not essential, as long as you’re enthusiastic and willing to muck in. Here is a list of the types of things you might be asked to do in the garden: Weeding Planting Trimming Pruning Maintaining paths Cutting grass Tidying up
