DAISY Fridays

There's no admission fee for the Garden on the first Friday of every month - designed to make visiting accessible and enable more people to experience the benefits of spending time connecting with nature in the Garden, without the worry of a set admissions fee.

We would be incredibly grateful if visitors who are able to do so, make a donation based on what they feel they can on these Fridays – your donations made an invaluable difference to our Charitable Trust and support our conversation and education work for communities of plants and people in Fife.
