Community Garden


North Edinburgh Grows is NEA’s award-winning garden project.

This community garden space is a hidden sanctuary in the heart of Muirhouse and is open to everyone. There is a play area, sand pits, gardening plots for groups, homegrown fruit and veg for the Pop-In Café to use and seats and spaces for relaxing.

Garden sessions

Our Garden Artist in Residence Natalie Taylor will be creating a living dome in the Garden to attract butterflies at the end of the summer. We will be running short socially distanced sessions for children and families in July.  These sessions will be a great opportunity to make butterfly feeders and garden for butterflies, as well as to learn other gardening skills like growing your own veg.  Keep an eye out for more details coming soon!

Volunteering in the Garden

If you’re interested in doing some work in the Garden over the summer, please get in touch with our Garden team by emailing

The garden project is currently supported by the Big Lottery Fund, the City of Edinburgh Council, Tesco Bags of Help, and the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens.
