About Us

We are Edinburgh Garden Partners (EGP), a charity matching people who want to garden with people who have space to share.

Please note that we are currently operating ‘seasonally’. Our Project Co-ordinators will be back ready to make garden matches at the start of February 2017. If you are keen to get involved please do get in touch with us then.

We focus on those who need most help, often older or disabled individuals or carers, but are also delighted to support mainstream garden owners who would like to share their space.

Garden volunteers benefit from access to gardening, befriending, food growing and joining a thriving community of growers across the city. It’s a mutually beneficial match, guided and supported by us.

“I was thinking about moving into a flat…the garden was all very neglected. Best thing that ever happened sharing my garden. Peace of mind” — Garden sharer

“I love gardening and can’t get an allotment, it has changed my life” — Gardener
