It’s full-on here at Edinburgh Garden Partners as the sun finally starts to shine and the grass, and certainly the weeds, start growing with a vengence!

Several new garden shares have been established during this month, a notable one behind a large tenement block in Newington that has a huge unloved back green for sharing, we have so far placed 4 very happy volunteers there with grand plans for the space.

Our cherished garden volunteers joined us staff for the annual EGP ‘pot luck picnic’, this year we held it at the Botanical Gardens (huge thanks to them for allowing us to do so). The picnic was much enhanced by the lovely Vegware plates, cups, napkins and cutlerly so kindly donated to us a wee while ago – as ever, grateful thanks to you!
