Glasgow Kelvin College was delighted to meet Catherine McGurk and Agnes Gallagher from The Levenseat Trust at the East End Community Garden earlier this week. The garden sits to the rear of the College’s East End Campus in Haghill.
The rain did not dampen proceedings whilst they toured the garden together with College managers and discussed the future benefits of the project for the community and for students.
The Levenseat Trust has assisted the College by funding the clearance of the wasteground, enabling the creation of the Community Garden next to the car park. The Garden is under development.
The Trust have also funded the purchase of a polytunnel tool shed which are both located on the site.
The College is extremely grateful to the Levenseat Trust and to Catherine and Agnes for taking the time to visit the site and hand over the funding cheque which equates to around £4,200.
There is still a bit of work to be undertaken before the garden can open fully for use by students, staff and the local community but it is anticipated that it will be in full bloom next summer.
