The Walled Kitchen Gardens Network in Scotland celebrates an important part of its history while promoting local food at its best. During the 19th and 20th centuries, many large country homes in Scotland had a walled kitchen garden, which supplied not only vegetables, but also herbs and flowers. This Network brings together experts to help interested people to build their own walled kitchen gardens, whether for themselves, or to build a businesses. Some businesses for which the Network advises include: educational ones for kids and gardeners, food production for sale at markets, visitor ones for people interested in horticulture and history, and historical restoration.
