Come and help out at our flourishing community gardens and learn how to grow fruit and vegetables.
We host community meals, barbecues and (thanks to a recent Awards for All grant) food growing workshops for members of the local community. We also run a gardeners cafe at the Royston Wardieburn community centre.
There remains a large amount of severely underused land in Granton, and GCC have a vision to see it transformed into a more healthy and productive environment that brings people together across generational and cultural divides, and makes a significant contribution to the health, food culture, and perception of public space across North Edinburgh.
We plant: potatoes; onions; mange tout peas; radishes; peas; parsnips; kale; mustard leaf; beetroot; leeks; turnips; lettuce; carrots; spinach; purple sprouting broccoli; cabbage; pumpkins; strawberries; fruit bushes etc.
We have a herb plot (thyme, rosemary, mustard, mint etc) and plant sunflowers and daffodils.
We also have greenhouses for tomatoes, peppers etc.
So why not come along and join in the fun. You can plant, build, dig, skill swap, teach or simply enjoy some good company.
We meet at the garden on corner of Wardieburn Road and Boswall Parkway.
