The Food is Free scheme has been running in the town for five years.
It is part of a movement which began in Texas but has grown to include communities around the globe, which takes pieces of ground and turns them into gardens producing free harvests for everyone.
Volunteers leave fruit and vegetables at various locations across the town for locals to enjoy.
Since the fire, Carnoustie residents have rallied round to clear the damage and a crowdfunding page to pay for repairs has raised more than £4,000.
