Garden Development

Posted 28/12/2020

Seasons Greetings

We hope you have had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year, we certainly are. Here at CEEP we have collated all responses from the renovation initial idea. After reviewing the feedback we have changed the position of one of the potting sheds. One of the sheds will be located at the top of the garden, near the entrance. Please see revised Renovation plan below. 

The shed is hoping to be in place in the next couple of days. Then the poly tunnels will be out up, with the garden hopefully reopening again in late January 2021. There are very exciting times ahead, please stay in touch for the latest updates.

Renovation Final Plan

 


Posted – 26/10/2020

Have your say in the exciting times ahead.

As you may be aware there are construction works underway at Craigie’s Farm & Deli for a new Play Barn, which is hoping to be opened in 2021. John and Kristeen Sinclair have asked that the smaller polytunnels and potting shed to be located within the CEEP garden boundary.

The trustees have been looking into the placement of the polytunnels and shed, as well as reviewing  participants’ feedback and H&S. As a result trustees have developed an idea for the redevelopment of the garden and would appreciate any comments or feedback on the proposal.

Please get in touch with your feedback using the Contact Us page or by emailing mailto:secretary@craigiesproject.org.uk.

During this construction period the CEEP garden will need to be closed to participants due to health and safety reasons. Currently there are a variety of preparatory tasks being completed and materials collected within the gardens.

Therefore, the CEEP gardens will be closed as of Monday 26th October 2020 until further notice. Once all comments and feedback are received a final idea will be shared with you and the construction works completed as soon as possible.

Thank you for your time and patience during this period.

Proposed plans

  1. Large polytunnel will stay as it is.
  2. Campbell’s shed will stay as it is.
  3. BBQ area to be constructed.
  4. Raised beds proposed turning. This is to allow for easier working by wheelchair users.
  5. Proposed paths running throughout main part of garden. This will increase the ability of those less able to move around the garden. Paths will also contribute to reducing the risk of slipping or falling on wet grass.
  6. 10 ft polytunnel to be located within the garden boundary, with hard core base, reducing the risk of slipping inside the tunnels and contributing to the ease of cleaning of polytunnel floor.
  7. Potting shed to be located within the garden boundary.
  8. Potting shed to be located within the garden boundary.
  9. Allotment beds proposed wooden frames. Allowing for plots to be uniform and the affixing of bird netting.
  10. 12 ft polytunnel to be located within the garden boundary, with hard core base, reducing the risk of slipping inside the tunnels and contributing to the ease of cleaning of polytunnel floor.
  11. Proposed water pipe placement underground. Will provide irrigation to polytunnels. Placed under ground to reduce the risk of pipe being damaged or burst.
