Steps to Grow

It’s great to be able to see more families as restrictions ease. Our Steps to Grow group at Granton Community Garden is now fully up and running, with lots of activities planned up to summer.

The aim of the group is to bring families together, reducing isolation and helping both parents and children explore the outdoors together.

Last week saw families collecting vegetables from the garden, preparing food and helping to tidy up the garden space. Other up coming topics include learning about all the benefits bumble bees, making windmills, making face masks and preparing our own soup. Towards the start of summer we will finish up with a teddy bears picnic for all the families to enjoy.

This group can be accessed by any young parent families living in North Edinburgh. If you, or someone you know is interested in coming along and getting to know other parents and helping your child to build peer relationships, drop us an email at
