BELHAVEN Community Garden has been catching the eye of train passengers with its stunning display of sunflowers.

The garden, which was established five years ago by Sustaining Dunbar in the grounds of Belhaven Hospital, has produced a field of sunflowers which have grown tall enough to be spotted from passing trains.

The flowers were donated to the garden by Innerwick farmer David Moffat, whose grandfather William Moffat spent his final days at the hospital.

The garden was established to provide a special place for patients at the hospital, their families and visitors to come and relax.

It is run by a group of volunteers from the community and has expanded over five years to offer events throughout the years, from yoga classes to beekeeping courses.

The Natural Beekeepers of Dunbar are based in the gardens, where vegetables are grown for the community alongside an orchard.

Schools and youth groups have the chance to join in with their own beds for growing as they learn about food.

The garden will be holding its own apple day on Sunday, October 8, when people will be invited to come and help collect all the apples from the orchard.

Visitors will also have the chance to bake apple dishes with an oven on-site during the day and there will be a chance to squeeze fresh apple juice from the harvest.

Lorraine Turner from the community garden said: “The garden was established for the hospital and the community and we have events all year round as well as volunteers who work hard.

“We are always looking for more volunteers to get involved in the garden, which is very rewarding.”

Anyone who wants to get involved in the garden should email Lorraine at for more details.
