Open Day and BBQ September 2010

On 10th September 2010 we held our 4th annual Open Day and BBQ at the Nursery.

We had a fabulous sunny afternoon with a record attendance, the BBQ was a great success with many thanks to our acting chef, Mich.

The Nursery looked fantastic due to all the hard work put in by Sue, Euan, Michelle and Rob.

We were joined this year by local suppliers Beatsons Building Supplies, Damhead Organics, and Scottish Kitchen Harvest (the jam from Scottish Kitchen Harvest was delicious).

A great afternoon enjoyed by all.
