Welcome to Murieston Community Garden, which we are developing in Murieston, Livingston, West Lothian, for use by local residents and visitors. The garden has raised beds to allow people to grow vegetables, and eventually will have a beautiful relaxing public area with diverse planting and a sensory garden for everyone to enjoy.
In 2021, we gained the use of a plot of land close to Livingston South Railway Station and were donated sleepers to use for raised beds. We have now built 11 raised beds but much of the garden still needs to be built before it can be used. All of this will take some time and will need help from the community. You can help by:
- Following updates on our public Facebook page: Murieston Community Garden
- Joining our volunteer group on Facebook to help when you can: Murieston Community Garden Volunteers
- Donating to our funds
Supported by an award from The National Lottery Community Fund, made possible by National Lottery players
Murieston Community Garden is delighted to announce that we have received an award of £10,000 from The National Lottery Community Fund Scotland made possible by National Lottery players.
Thank you to The National Lottery and everyone who plays for helping to make our garden a reality. Watch out for progress in the garden over the next year.
The National Lottery Community Fund, Scotland Chair, Kate Still said:
“National Lottery funding can make amazing things happen in local communities across the country. This project delivered by Murieston Community Garden, is a great example of community activity in action, showing just what can be achieved not only during the Festive season, but all year round, when people come together for a common cause or to help others.
“National Lottery players can be proud to know that the money they raise is helping to support this vital work which is making a real difference to so many.”
