Last night at 10.30 after much punctures and bust-spokes arrived the Otesha gang. Otesha are a traveling band of young people on a bike tour of southern Scotland called ‘Tastetastic': three weeks exploring food sustainability.” (more here). Bunked down at St Serfs Hall in Burntisland they were quickly put to work by that slave-driver Elly Kinross helping out at Broomhill Gardens, while Lisa Farrell cooked up a storm including Garlic and Mint Soup and rolls from Bread in Fife. Here are some photos of the work-day which included masses and masses of weeding, tender care of the fruit trees, lots of strimming by John O (aka The Terminator) and more, er, weeding.

A huge thanks to all the Otesha people for all their hard work, what a great boost to the garden. We welcome you and hope you have a lovely day off tomorrow around Burntisland, Kinghorn, Kirkcaldy and Aberdour.
