Connecting with nature and saving money!
We are for a happy, healthy, leafy Leith.
Growing food benefits your pocket, your health, your mood and the environment, and is particularly good for children.
We are showing the way, growing food in the heart of an urban community - yes, it can be done!
We aim to build a more rural lifestyle into this urban world. Well, this little part of the world we call Leith.
As our ideas take root, we should certainly meet the government targets for health and well-being, and whilst doing all this we too are growing environmental sustainability.
