Leith & Lochend Home Grown was a 2020 project of Edible Estates to support folk to grow vegetables at home whilst their locked down by Covid 19. The project is being delivered by our community gardener Patrick Dunne with the support of volunteers.
We provided more than 200 households with a Home Grown starter pack, containing seeds, compost and pots (see below). Our community of growers gardeners offered instructions and advice through our Facebook Page and a Group. We published a series of videos, and answered questions for those who joined the Facebook Group. We also encouraged more experienced growers to join the project to share their knowledge and inspire us with their own growing at home.
This project is on hold and has been developed in the Leith Community Growers initiative which is working to provide planters, gardens and greenspace innovations in Leith. You can find us here www.facebook.com/leithcommunitygrowing
We welcome donations to support Leith Community Growers. More funds will also allow us to deliver more projects, packs, planters and pots helping more people.
Leith & Lochend Home Grown is funded by Foundation Scotland
