Award winning local charity and social enterprise, Silver Birch (Scotland) Ltd turned 20 years old this year, having grown from a small therapeutic gardening project in 1996
To mark this milestone, they hosted a celebratory garden party recently within their 11 acre grounds in Milton of Campsie.
The party also celebrated the opening of their new £20k learning garden, The Body & Mind Garden, which has been jointly funded by The Big Lottery Awards For All fund and The People’s Postcode Trust.
Local Provost for East Dunbartonshire, Una Walker officially launched the gardens at the anniversary party, which was attended by 75 people including partners, clients and staff.
The Body & Mind Garden will also allow the organisation to increase capacity to support people with learning disabilities, attract more people to visit and increase charitable income.
