We need as many people as possible to fill out this survey and enable us to make decisions about how to move forward with Leith Community Croft
A nice little selection of diverse leith grown tomatoes picked this season, Sept 2013!
We are tasting these sun kissed beauties straight of the bush with Leith primary parents and their children, and we're learning all about what a superior flavour home grown food has for us.
We aim to do some seed saving with some of these heirloom varieties and look forward to getting a nice collection to put away for next season.
This year's big producer was our gooseberry bush.
In summer 2012 we made tangy gooseberry jam, and a little compote to go with our desserts, Yum!
We potted the bush on in autumn in the hope that it would flourish again the next year. We might at some point take some cuttings and have a few extra plants to crop from.
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.
Apparently in the countryside courgettes grow like weeds, so growers have plenty to give away.
This rings true, as here in Leith we were cropping many good-sized courgettes per week throughout the summer, for free, from a small Ikea bag full of soil!
