Balerno Village Trust is a community enterprise which runs a farmers market and seeks to foster sustainable community development.

Balerno Village Trust - BVT (formerly BVCDF) was founded in 2003 by Balerno Community Council.

BVT’s aims are:

- Sustainability
- Community development
- Education & health
- To fund other local people to do the same

all this within Balerno and surrounding districts.

Our projects aim to complement and support the work of the Balerno Community Council.

BVT is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status. As a Development Trust, we are members of DTA Scotland, and are well constituted to start and run community enterprises.

We are an open organisation – open to local people who would like to add to the quality of our community life.
