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) 12-2, and Community Lunch (all welcome!) 2pm. Every Wednesday at the garden!  

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.

Wednesday 27th September 5-6pm

Wednesday 1st November 5-6pm *  

Wednesday 29th November 5-6pm

Dress for the weather!      

*Please note the 'October' meal will take place on Weds 1st November as the Scran van wasn't available the last Weds in October.  This is different from some previous publicity which just says 'the last Weds of each month'.

Women's Gardening Club, Friday mornings.    

Beginners welcome, tasks to suit a range of abilities.

Run in partnership with Women Supporting Women project (Pilton Community Health Project)
