Gardening Scotland 2015


Soroptimist International of Dunfermline and Dalgety Bay Horticultural Society won GOLD  at the 2015 Gardening Scotland held at the end of May.
The garden was on a plot 20 foot square and illustrated one of SI Dunfermline’s current projects based in Rwenzori, Uganda.

The project has several strands; Education, Empowering and Enabling. The garden was split to show these three aspects plus information was displayed in the gazebo describing the everyday life of the people living in the Rwenzori area of Uganda.

Several wonderful wicker figures showed girls at different activities and attracted a lot of attention to the stand; Misty was in the vegetable plot hoeing ; Lucy was at the water pump and Alice studied her text books in the hut.
Further information on the garden and the project can be found at our Rwenzori Uganda Project .

Our design and build team have been working very hard since the Autumn of 2014 to produce a garden which embodies the spirit of Soroptimism and specifically,  Visits have been made to suppliers and all sorts of surprises are on order for the finished garden. Lots and lots of plants have been planted and structures built and placed. Judging tomorrow Thursday 28th May.
