Highlights from a year with Gracemount Grow Stronger

Transition Edinburgh South and Edinburgh Food Social have produced a booklet highlighting the many successes of Gracemount Grow Stronger. It is a community food growing project that involves community organisations, local people, local schools, youth groups and volunteers of all ages. 

The booklet captures all the activities happening around Gracemount Walled Garden, including

  • gardening
  • food growing
  • cooking classes
  • nature activities
  • outdoor learning
  • classroom activities
  • and practical conservation

and much more.

This project was funded by the Climate Challenge Fund, with further contributions from the Dunedin Canmore Youth Project, the Mushroom Trust and Awards for All.
