Covid-19 UPDATE...

We're excited to be starting a new online nature activity programme with Sandys Community Centre and Craigmillar Community Grows.

For further information, please get in touch.

Focusing in and around Craigmillar Castle Park, this project has delivered a wide range of community engagement activities and volunteering opportunities that have fostered a greater understanding of nature and its value through community events, nature walks, natural play activities, workshops and practical conservation tasks.

By delivering a series of community events we have enabled the local community to learn new skills, get involved in volunteering activities, engage with nature and meet other local residents.

We have worked alongside local schools, organisations and community groups to deliver several initiatives to further strengthen the project’s outcomes.

A key local organisation we have been working with is Youth Build to provide a programme of practical upskilling for local young people to help them develop their skills and confidence.

The project is has also identified opportunities for woodland improvements within Craigmillar Castle Park through the Woods In and Around Towns scheme (WIAT).

Below are some of the activities/events we have organised at Craigmillar Castle Park.

- Woodland and Access improvements
- Upskilling Group
- Woodland Activities
- Magical Woodlands Walk
- Family Forest Festival
- Conservation Work
- ‘Circus of Lights’
- Bulb Planting Sessions
- Tree Dressing
- Circus Skills
- Wild Art
- Bat Walks
- Foraging Guided Walk
- Owl Magic

Over the next few weeks, we are hoping to run a few small events at the park with social distancing in place. We are looking forward to seeing everyone very soon. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/greenspacetrust over the next few weeks for more information about the events.
