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!  

Please note: PCHP groups are having a break for the month of April, this includes women's cooking club.  Everyone is still welcome at the garden from 1-4 every Wednesday, and we'll still provide a community lunch every week.

Community Meals with the SCRAN VAN at the garden.
