Community Herb Gardens

"As we grow gardens we grow community"


Our Gardens:

You can find our Community Herbal Gardens here:

  • The Secret Herb Garden, Near Drymen  - Every Monday at 10-12 with soup from the Soup Dragon Cafe.  Email us if you would like to bring your group to the garden

  • Killearn Community Food and Herb Forest Garden

  • Govanhill Community Garden - Herb bed linked to our Community Learning Apothecary at Milk, Victoria Road.






We would love to welcome your group to our Secret Herb Garden for a morning of gardening or medicine making or crafting or yoga and walks in the calm and tranquillity of the rural landscape, surrounded by mountains, fields and woodland.  There is a café onsite too.  We are just 40 minutes from Glasgow city centre and Stirling.  Gardening, or just being in nature, is such a therapeutic activity especially if you can get out of the city for a couple of hours of respte and nature connection.  We can run mini-retreats with a mix of activities or single-focused sessions.  All of our staff are PVG checked for working with vulnerable adults and we can make adjustments required to accommodate your group.  Please get in contact.






From Garden to Medicine.  


Do you have a space in your garden, work or community to grow medicinal herbs?  Would you like to work with us to create a community herbal garden?  We will provide support to get you growing, harvesting and making your herbs into medicine.  The Garden to Medicine Project will enable your community to be involved in the entire process from start to finish.  The project aims to respond to the increase in demand of herbal remedies by giving people the skills to make their own and to reduce the increased demand on the climate and global herb supplies (some of which are being harvested to extinction) by growing and using local herbs.  The network will be able to share herbs where needed and extra herbs will be used in our other workshops.
