The South West Railway Adopter Gardening Group (SWRAGG) look after the gardens at Dumfries Railway Station providing a haven for wildlife and a colourful display to make travelling more enjoyable for the many people who pass through the station. 

A Spoikes person for the group told DGWGO Community News “We are a small, friendly group of volunteers who enjoy being out in the fresh air and gardening, providing a platform for people and plants to thrive.
New volunteers are always welcome.  There is always a job for someone regardless of their gardening experience as many hands make light work.  For further information contact [email protected] or see www.swragg.weebly.com We also have a Facebook page – South West Railway Adopter Gardening Group where weekly updates of what is happening in the garden are posted.  SWRAGG also take care of plants at Stranraer and Gretna Green stations as well as several stations in Ayrshire which are tended by colleagues who live in the West.  We meet at 10.30am on a Monday morning, rain or shine, at Dumfries Station on Platform 1.”


If you have not been to the station for a while come and take time out on the seats in the garden which is quite sheltered and enjoy the birdsong, the plants and the sunshine (weather permitting).


On 30 June 2019, Dumfries Station is open for charity as part of the Scotland’s Gardens Scheme – please come along to say hello.
