We are raising funds – through a crowdfunding campaign – to support the valuable work of Gracemount Grow Stronger. Please help us!
Since 2013 we’ve focused on developing the Gracemount Community Garden, encouraging the local community to get involved in growing and eating locally produced vegetables. Located in one of the most deprived areas of Edinburgh, the walled garden in the grounds of the Gracemount Mansion House has become a space for growing, sharing and learning and a hub of community engagement that is welcoming to all.
In addition to the core work in the garden itself – in which local residents of all ages come together to make it happen – and in partnership with Edinburgh Food Social, we run community lunches, healthy eating workshops with schools and community groups, and outreach work to encourage people in the area to grow more vegetables in their own gardens.
Having a paid, part-time gardener and chef is central to everything we do. Without these valuable employees much of our work would grind to a halt. Our current funding for these crucial posts is coming to an end and we need your support to ensure that we can keep them. Please help us to reach our target and continue our work!
