The role of the site garden is to provide a therapeutic environment for the vulnerable adults supported by Tagsa, including the Elderly and Dementia Support (EDS) group, as well as individuals with other challenges, both mental and physical, allowing them an escape from a otherwise-challenging life.
Registered Charity in Scotland (SC029417)
For the past 4 years our gardeners have been dedicated to the recycling of wish-farm waste, otherwise redundant and destined for landfill, such as netting for windbreak structures, plastic fish-tanks (80+) for compost bins and raised planters, and, most recently, large plastic fish-cage structures for further raised planters for fruit and veg. We strive to expand this recycling of waste, and saving it from going into landfill.
By continuing to promote composting, recycling of waste, and raising awareness of simple steps to be taken in carbon footprint reduction, through therapeutic gardening activities, and local food production. An open invitaion has been extended to the Uist & Barra Foodbank to access our products and services, and to the wider community in Uist, in the availability of fresh garden produce, growing materials, and plants ready to plant out in their own gardens across the islands.
