This event is open to carers residing in or caring for a person in Edinburgh only.

When: Thursday 4 April, 1pm – 3pm.

About the event:  

Volunteer and make a real, positive difference to food and farming in Edinburgh. No previous knowledge or experience with plants or growing is needed – this is a great place to learn and connect with others. Tools and work gloves will be provided.

Lauriston Farm is a 100 acre piece of land in North West Edinburgh, overlooking the Firth of Forth, and has a long history of food production, however in recent years the land was solely being used for intermittent grazing and silage production. You can find out more information about Lauriston Farm on their website.

Delivered by:

She also lived for 10 years on a community farm, practising and teaching growing, seed-saving and earthen building. She has been involved with Lauriston Farm since 2019 and also works with Granton Community Gardens.
