We were delighted that Provost Leishman agreed to formally open the SSERC digital garden – a collaborative programme between SSERC and King’s Road Primary School, Rosyth. SSERC staff and staff and learners from King’s Road took an area  of wasteland from SSERC HQ and turned it into a digital garden. The learners worked with SSERC staff to design, build and then plant fruits, flowers and vegetable seeds. The Chair of the SSERC Board (Alan Nimmo) and the SSERC CEO (Alastair MacGregor) were present for the opening. What is a digital garden? It’s a standard allotment type garden, but with digital devices monitoring water moisture levels, greenhouse digitally controlled watering and ventilation systems, QR codes identifying plants. We even have a movement monitored camera that captures wildlife movement that can be accessed by the school. We thank Scotland Loves Local, Fife Council and Arnold Clark Community Fund for their part funding this project.
