Granton Community Gardeners

Granton Community Gardeners:   Local people growing, cooking and eating food together.

We are a community led charity based in North Edinburgh.

We create and cultivate community gardens, host community meals and events, support anyone in the area who wants to grow food, and think creatively about how best to make sure everyone in our area is fed well.




 Open to all, children with a responsible adult.

Dress for the weather.

Beginners and experts welcome.

Come and join in with a range of seasonal gardening tasks. Help look after the community garden, and grow food for the community.  (everyone helping gets a share of the harvests).

You can also get a free hot community lunch around 2pm see below for details.

If you're new, ask for Lisa, Tom or Claire.

Outdoor Cooking Club (women only) and Community Lunch (all welcome!) Every Wednesday at the garden!  

Please note: during January the cooking (and sometimes the meal) will actually be indoors at Pilton Community Health Project -73 Boswall Parkway, but if you come to the garden we can direct you.

Community Meals with the SCRAN VAN at the garden. 

We're very glad to be continuing our meals with the SCRAN VAN into 2023!    

Anyone is welcome! It's good to eat together as a community.  Free tasty hot food.

The next meal is Wednesday 1st March  5-6pm

Followed by Weds 29th March 5-6pm

Wrap up warm! 

(please note, Scran van meals are usually the last Weds of each month, but due to availability of the van, the 'Feb' meal will be on 1st March)


EVERY SATURDAY 10am-2pm   

Freshly baked sourdough bread and treats.

Loaves are sold: ‘pay what you can afford’.  Everyone should be able to eat real bread!

Pay what you can, support us if you can.
