Thanks to the Scottish Government Wellbeing Fund (#wellbeingfund), we are running Survival School sessions offering fun and learning in Gracemount Community Garden. This programme is for children attending Gracemount Primary School and their families. Activities will focus 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. Letting go of stress is particularly important during the current crisis.
If you are local and interested, please send us a message.

Food and the Future


Making Change Happen

Transition Edinburgh South (TES) is part of a transition movement created by people working together in local areas to find ways to create transformative change. Our aims are to reduce carbon emissions, meet social needs, enable sustainable lifestyles, and create new forms of collaborative democracy and decision-making.

Coronavirus Update

Gracemount Community Garden is the principal project of Transition Edinburgh South. It is a beautiful space within the walled garden of Gracemount Mansion House in the South of Edinburgh. In the garden you will find beds of vegetables, herbs, soft fruit, a small orchard, a compost heap, flowers and lovely wild patches in which to sit. Normally visitors are very welcome, but please avoid visiting at this time while we are operating under the Covid 19 restrictions. To find out more about what we do, to ask a question, or to arrange a visit when conditions allow, please get in touch.
