Project background

Edinburgh and Lothians Greenspace Trust used a grant of £7,783 to create a new community garden on vacant land at the Venchie in Craigmillar, Edinburgh. The new garden includes 9 plots for individuals or community groups, 8 smaller plots with low raised beds, and 4 hip high raised beds for use by those with reduced mobility. New paths, seating and picnic tables have been installed and a new fruit hedge (with fruit trees and raspberry bushes) has been planted.
