Our beautiful tranquil community Garden is a lovely place to take a break during workshops and events. Sit on our patio, wander around our permaculture garden and vegetable beds, or sit quietly by the pond or ancient holy well.
The lawn and/or fire pit (now with fire shelter) are also available for hire for a fee, which will include access to the kitchen and toilets. Other parts of the garden not included in your hire (such as the vegetable garden) may still be accessed by staff, volunteers and other Centre users, so your usage is not guaranteed to be completely private.
Fire wood can be purchased as part of your hire for an additional fee, or you may bring your own. Please note that if you intend to light a fire then a competent person must take responsibility for lighting and extinguishing the fire safely and ensuring that it is not left unattended at any time.
A marquee is also available for hire to mitigate against the unpredictable Scottish weather. Last minute cancellations due to the weather will be charged the full hire fee. If your event cannot go ahead if the weather is bad then we advise that you hire a back up room as well as the garden.
Volunteers are now meeting to work in the garden on Friday afternoons.
To hire the garden please send us your hire request via the enquiry form and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. You can check the current availability of the room using the calendar above. If you have any other questions please do get in touch.
Garden hire rates up to 12 hours are shown. For information about longer hires and multiple room hires, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Off-peak defined: An off-peak booking is a booking of any room on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday only, where at least the first four hours fall before 17:00. Bookings shorter than four hours must fall before 17:00 entirely to qualify for off-peak pricing. Off-peak rates do not apply to Saturdays or Sundays at any time.
1/4, 1/2, 3/4 hours: A minimum charge of 1 hour applies to all hires. Thereafter, consecutive fractions of hours up to 30 minutes will be charged as an additional half hour, based on the 1 hour rate while anything over 30 minutes will be charged as an additional one hour. (ie, no 15 minute booking fees).
