Highlights from a year with Gracemount Grow Stronger
During the year April 2016 to March 2017 Transition Edinburgh South partnered with Edinburgh Food Social and produced a yearbook highlighting the many successes of Gracemount Grow Stronger, a community food growing project that involves community organisations, local people and schools, youth groups and volunteers of all ages.
The yearbook captures all the activities happening around Gracemount Walled Garden including:
- food growing
- cooking classes
- nature activities and outdoor learning
- classroom activities
- practical conservation
and much more.
This project was funded by the Climate Challenge Fund, with further contributions from the Dunedin Canmore Youth Project, the Mushroom Trust and Awards for All.
Transition Edinburgh South is a small community organisation that aims to tackle issues of climate change and peak oil – such as fuel poverty and food insecurity – by promoting and demonstrating sustainable living in our neighbourhoods.
