Friends of Granton Castle Walled Garden

To protect and restore the 15thC Walled Garden that was once part of the now-demolished Granton Castle. In doing this we aim to create a thriving, sustainable and productive community garden and heritage gateway to Edinburgh's waterfront through a community-led approach that will be accessible to existing and new populations and will contribute to community integration and cohesion.

Current opportunity

Who can resist the chance to help restore a 'lost' 15th century walled garden here in Edinburgh? Or to get fit without paying gym costs? We are keen to recruit volunteers for a wide variety of gardening tasks. You don't have to have specific gardening skills – enthusiasm counts. A wide variety of activities are involved in the restoration project – digging, clearing, weeding, planting, general repair and maintenance of sheds, greeting, helping with planning, harvesting seasonal produce being some of them.
