A great year for the trail…

Looking back over the year….

This summer we had our launch event for the St Cyrus Edible Trail. It was a nice sunny day and it was great to see so many ears enjoying the Feis Rois Ceilidh Band and many a taste bud enjoying the foraged wares of Mark Williams.

It was an abundant year for the plants along the trail with lots of wild raspberries, hawthorn berries, blackberries and apples. There were particularly nice blackberries over the old railway bridge on Beach Road and the white currants that we planted last year in the Community Garden started bearing fruits this year.

Herbs were planted outside the Bakery Coffee Shop and also in the Community Garden.

Many thanks to Scottish Natural Heritage for funding the improvement of the cliff path, it is now much more accessible.

As the last apples cling to the trees and winter peeks its head around the corner thoughts are turning to which fruit trees and bushes to plant where along the trail. There will be a planting session at St Cyrus Community Garden on the 2nd February 11am til 3pm to kick things off again.
