Edible Estates are often looking to hire Community Gardener/s, either sessional or PAYE, to deliver workshops at community garden sites across Edinburgh. This is particularly the case during the growing season but less so during the quieter winter months. It may be one workshop/week or several, depending upon the availability of applicants. For sessional (self-employed) work we would pay a rate of £20/hour for suitable qualified/experienced candidates.
