Unexpected Garden: Forres

Something unexpected is taking root! The Unexpected Garden Forres will celebrate an edible organism that thrives in the dampest and darkest spots of all. Wander down the alleyways of Forres High Street, and you’ll be transported into living lanes, where mushrooms are being carefully cultivated in shadowy entryways. Elsewhere, seeds are sprouting in window boxes and vertical gardens dot the streets – Forres is going to town with growing. Supported by a summer-long programme of events and activities, culminating in a town centre display and harvest celebration.

The programme will strengthen community networks in the town centre as local residents, growers, artists and groups share ideas, learn and inspire new ways of thinking about growing.
