Seconds off Dunbar High Street, down Garden Lane, is the beautiful Backlands community garden run by The Ridge, a charity that provides life and employment skills. Since 2012 it has been transformed from a rubbish-strewn eyesore to a calming, productive space run by charity staff and volunteers. Fully accessible, it functions as a market garden, training ground, event space, living history, outdoor cooking classroom and occasional pop-up restaurant. Regular events run on-site, advertised on the charity’s Facebook pages. A particular focus is the rebuilding of the Black Bull Close buildings: a range of workshops exploring their heritage and history are organised throughout the year.
