Broomhouse Home Grown is a project of Space & Broomhouse Hub to support folk to grow vegetables at home whilst their locked down by Covid 19. Besides Broomhouse, we also support households in Saughton, Stenhouse, Parkhead and Sighthill.
It’s being delivered by our community gardeners, Steve Pike and Iain Withers, from our base at Broomhouse Market Garden (behind the Broomhouse Market shops), in partnership with Broomhouse Community Growers Association.
We will provide households with a free Home Grown starter pack, containing seeds, compost and pots. Our community gardeners will give instructions and advice through our Facebook Page and a Group. They will publish a series of videos, and answer questions for those who join the Facebook Group. We also encourage more experienced growers to join the project to share their knowledge and inspire us with their own growing at home.
To receive a starter pack, fill in the form on the right and join the Home Grown Facebook Group. We will arrange for collection, or deliver the starter pack to your door/foot of your stair.
