Why are we making a garden?

We’re  making a new garden for Dunoon Goes POP, the soft drinks  enterprise  based at the POP shop in Dunoon. We want to bring soft  drinks production  back to Dunoon in a way that minimises our impact on  the planet and  maximises our positive impact on the community.We’ll do this by  connecting people to the fascinating heritage of  soft drinks-making  through practical workshops, growing ingredients and  gathering local  heritage stories. All workshops are free and everyone  is welcome.
