Our work in Leith dates back 2004-8 when Edinburgh Community Backgreens Association was founded. Three community backgreens were established, called Strawberry Field, Sunshine on Leith Gardens (SOL) and Foxfield.
The Strawberry Field, and Foxfield are only for the use of the tenement residents which live around them. Sunshine on Leith Garden is the only site which is accessible from the street. Whilst priority of membership is given to households which live around the site, the project was conceived as a Neighbourhood Garden, for households between Leith Walk and Easter Road.
We intend to return to work in Leith in the near future, with Leigh Community Growing Project, we have set up a campaign page here. if you would like to get involved in bringing the project forward please get in touch.
