St Andrews Botanic Garden supports the community in and around St Andrews in many ways, from providing resources for community groups to use in the Garden to giving the crops from the Urban Farm to groups who wish to learn more about growing produce. The Kernel is an area within the Garden where community organisations such as St Andrews in Bloom, Men’s Shed, Beekeeping Fife, Edible Campus and St Andrews Environmental Network are based and meet regularly.

Beyond north east Fife, we are active members of national and international organisations that align with our work, including PlantNetwork, BGCI, and many horticultural and botanical societies including BSBI, Scottish Rock, Alpine Garden Society and the International Dendrology Society.

We are always open to new ideas that help people learn about or work with plants, so please get in touch if you have an idea for a project.
