Great Work at the Weekends clean-ups in Stockbridge and Dean Village

The work continues on the Big Annual Clean-up as teams tackled the river from Damside Weir to Falshaw Brigde. During the day we had 43 volunteers help - Thank you everyone. Here is a photo of just some of the team. Thank you to Dean Village Association and Stockbridge Community Council.

Another trip to the Parliament this week to celebrate #bagsofhelp from tescos

We were invited by Greenspace Scotland and Tesco to celebrate the two projects we have completed lately thanks to Tesco carrier bag levy, the Dean Valley Renovation and the Balgreen Community Garden. Overall in Scotland this fund has shared around £6million among over 2000 groups / projects and we were delighted to be in such interesting company.


Wee foxy visitor to the Centre this afternoon

Bonaly Primary School were being watched this afternoon during lunch break as this wee fella was so curious as to the noise


Partial Path Opening at Saughton Park - diversion is now around the pitches rather than the road

The work is certainly progressing in the park and it is great to have a good look through the fences, there is still no parking however.


Plant Sale was amazing - thank you to all involved we took over £1420

Once again the Plant Sale in early May proved popular and this year broke all records as we nearly 'Sold Out' in under an hour and a half. We estimate around 200 people joined us for the morning and spent over £1420!!! This event relies on the skills and generosity of our volunteers and members, tending and growing on plants for us, baking, and selling. We are also grateful to Pentland Plants and Alba Trees for their donations of stock. If you joined us I hope your plants are thriving and see you next year – with an improved queueing system perhaps.

All set up and ready to go

The queue!!

The scrum!!
