We are a local charity helping through horticulture.
We are thrilled to have received a 3 year award from The National Lottery Community Fund for our befriending through gardening. We will be using funding to support, and create more, partnerships reducing social isolation and improving wellbeing in the community.
The National Lottery Community Fund Scotland Chair, Maureen McGinn, said: “I am delighted that Edinburgh Garden Partners has been successful in securing a grant. The funding will make a big difference where it is needed most and I wish Edinburgh Garden Partners every success as it goes on to develop and expand its project for the benefit of their local community.”
Edinburgh Garden Partners creates befriending relationships through shared gardening experiences. We match the elderly, and others who are no longer able maintain their garden, with volunteers looking for a shared space to grow.
If you would like help with your garden, or are looking to get gardening, please get in touch!
