Wardieburn Road Community Backgreen


Wardieburn Road Community Backgreen

The community backgreen at Wardieburn Road was established in 2012-13 by Re:Solution working with local residents on behalf of Edinburgh City Council. The disused and overgrown area in the centre of a square of tenement was regenerated as a community greenspace project to form a hub for community activities. The success of the Wardieburn Road site was largely down to one resident Anna Mcgregor, a keen gardener who took on the role of community gardener for the project.  The group was provided with a shared tool shed and tool set, and raised beds. The neighbours work together to manage the site.
