Sites and Monument Record: Doocot Garden (SMR 1405-13)
Also known as "Cultivating Earth" or the "Teashop Garden."
The enclosed court behind the offices at Callendar Park started life in the 1780s as a drying green attached to the associated laundry. When the factor's house was built in c1810 part of it became a garden. In the 1990s Callendar House was opened as a museum and the plot was developed as a Georgian garden with a central pyramid-roofed pavilion. In 2012 this was redeveloped as an education tool for biodiversity and renamed "Cultivating Earth". A sprouting bronze globe in a steel frame, created by the artist Natalie Taylor, depicted the ethos of the garden. It was set in earth with seasonal flowers.
