Wester Hailes Edible Estates

Wester Hailes Edible Estates, is a collaborative project between The Health Agency, City of Edinburgh Council and Re:Solution.  The initiative started in 2013 with a development study to survey greenspace assets within three council estates in the south west of Edinburgh; Saughton Mains Park, Dumbryden, Murrayburn & Hailesland, and the Calders. The study surveyed the greenspace around the estates and carried out a door to door survey of a sample of households.  This indicated that there are ample sites for food growing projects, and demand from residents to participate. 

The project has gone on to attract Climate Challenge Fund, and People & Communities Fund investment which has supported the development of several Estate Growing Hubs, a youth training scheme, a healthy eating programme, and in 2015 the beginnings of a community market garden enterprise.

The project has its own website – www.whee.org.uk, and Facebook page.
