The Aberdeen Foyer Community Allotment has been officially opened at Aden Country Park.
The allotment has lowered flowerbeds and easy access for disabled users ensuring that everyone can have a go at planting.
Chief Executive Ken Milroy opened the allotment on Thursday, June 11 and thanked everyone who played their part in developing the community area.
The opening marks the end of stage 2 of Aberdeen Foyer’s work at the Aden Allotments.
Stage 1 involved developing the allotments from scratch and holding the first opening that took place last June by television presenter Jim McColl.
The next stage will see the creation of Have a Go Gardens which will give local groups and associations a chance to plant their own fruit and vegetables.
Ted Watkins of the Aden Community Allotment Association (ACAA) said: “There has been a fantastic turnout from our partners and people that have supported us and now we want to take this further by setting up the Have a Go Gardens to ensure that everyone can get involved.”
