Our Gracemount

We are delighted to have been awarded funding from the University of Edinburgh Community Grants programme for our project ‘Our Gracemount’, working with the Department of Social Responsibility and Sustainability @EdinUniLocal and the local community to promote new volunteering opportunities, and to develop the Mansion, stable block, community garden and local greenspace. For more information follow us on Twitter and Facebook.

Making Change Happen

Transition Edinburgh South (TES) works with local people and community organisations to regenerate greenspaces and community buildings.

 

We are part of the Transition Movement which is “a movement of communities coming together to reimagine and rebuild our world”.

Survival School

Thanks to the Scottish Government Wellbeing Fund (#wellbeingfund), we ran Survival School sessions in the summer of 2020. This programme was for children attending Gracemount Primary School and their families. Activities focused on learning how food is grown, on the variety of plants and animals (bio-diversity), on garden skills like composting, and on using the garden to exercise and relax. Read our case study by project leader Chris Macefield.
