Students ready to show off their work on popular garden

HORTICULTURAL STUDENTS IN MORAY have been quietly working in partnership with a local community to maintain one of the region’s most popular gardens.

The students and staff at Moray College UHI have been working in partnership with the Friends of the Biblical Garden in Elgin to maintain the site, first opened in 1996.

Now the Garden will be opening its gates once again to the public later this month for a public preview – before the garden is opened officially on May 1.

A spokesman said: “The public and prospective students are invited to come along to the garden on April 29 from 10am until 1pm for a first guided tour of the Biblical Garden.

“Moray College UHI work in partnership with the Friends of the Biblical Garden to maintain the garden which first opened in 1996 and continues to open every spring, showcasing plants grown in Biblical times to visitors from across the world.

“The college horticulture department is based here and offer courses across a range of levels giving students hands on practical experience working in the garden. Tours will run at 10.15, 10.45 and 11.15 with complimentary tea and coffees also on offer.

“Anyone who is interested in developing their gardening skills or landscaping and who would like to learn about the environment is welcome to come along and have a chat with our students and staff.”
