Beechgrove Garden, 2013 Episode 21 of 26

Duration: 30 minutes

Community Garden Special, Moniack Mhor Creative Writers Centre, Kiltarlity. The Beechgrove team travel to the mountains above Loch Ness to help in the culmination of a properly inspirational community garden. Moniack Mhor Creative Writers Centre is a meeting place for an area and community broadly named Kiltarlity and is situated about 800 feet above Loch Ness. Writers and would be writers visit this stunning but hugely exposed part of Scotland to be inspired and the centre is also used as a hub for the community in general.

The community want to create a garden that provides additional meeting places for the community but that has enough shelter from the elevated elements to grow produce for the local community, alongside a beautiful garden that links landscape to literature.

The team will be helping in the final stages of the community garden and will also be out and about in the Loch Ness area visiting lovely local gardens.

The team also conduct a Q&A at the community garden and try to deal with a range of local gardening problems.
