Our Gracemount

Thanks to the University of Edinburgh Community Grants programme for supporting the project ‘Our Gracemount’, working with and the local community, @EdSust and @EdinUniLocal to promote new volunteering opportunities, and to develop the mansion, stable block, community garden and local greenspace. See the Our Gracemount Report for 2021. 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”.

Investing in Communities

Thanks to funding from the Investing in Communities Fund we have been able to appoint 5 new members of staff: Johnny Smith Project Manager, Richard Whiston Garden Manager, Kirsten Foggo Food and Wellbeing Worker, Rita Budavári Youth and Children’s Worker, and Jane Hartley Development Worker for the Mansion Development Trust.

Please spend a pound (or several) by donating to help us repair our walls

The walls create a kind micro-climate. They provide shelter from winds that stunt plant growth and from frosts that shrivel. When painted white, they reflect light. When warmed by the sun, they retain and slowly re-release the heat. But now bits are missing and falling down. Please help us build them back up. The walls are part of a golden virtuous circle that makes the garden the refuge that it is.


Do you like meeting people and hearing their ideas to develop a much-loved community hub? Come and volunteer with us to help develop the Gracemount Mansion, Community Garden, Stable Block and greenspaces. #OurGracemount.
