Community Fund – Edinburgh Garden Partners – July Update

Here at EGP we are flat-out assessing gardens, recruiting volunteers and matching them up! Often by the time a call comes into us for help a garden can be ‘out of control’, we try and match a capable volunteer to the garden just as soon as we can but there can be several weeks delay. Thus we provide an ‘SOS’ service for gardens that need a bit of taming before the new volunteer can start working there. A team of dedicated souls typically arrive en masse with a large flask of tea and some treats (provided by us, of course!) and get to work clearing the space and returning it to it’s former glory.

The pictures show an example of a garden needing such attention and what it can look like just a short while later!

Thanks again to Vegware for helping us to provide training and materials for our volunteer gardeners to make such a transformation possible!
