Sunday 2nd February and each first Sunday of the month in 2014

A friendly group of Shandon Local Food Group’s community gardeners are continuing to meet on the first Sunday of the month at 2 pm in the Royal Edinburgh Community Gardens (directions below).

The next session is CANCELLED => next Session likely to be first Sunday in September 2014.  Please contact Sue for further details.

We welcome all ages and abilities though children should be supervised by a parent/carer.  2014 will be an eventful year as we embark on setting up a new garden whilst trying to harvest as much as possible from the existing gardens by August.

Depending on weather we may have a fire (and/or use a storm kettle).  We usually stop for tea and snack around 3:30 and packup 4:30-5 pm.

Please let Sue know if you are planning to come (  For insurance purposes, please make sure you are a Shandon Local Food Group member – simply email

Directions: From Shandon go along Myreside Road, past the Watsons Pavillion, stadium and foot bridge; after 100 metres you will see the garden entrance through a large black gate on the left hand side.

There is a portaloo and tool shed.  Note that the portacabin with toilet and small kitchen has been moved to the site of the new garden (June2014).

Please see below for a few photos of our special fun meeting on Sunday 5th January which attracted around 50 people.
