Edinburgh Garden Partners

Do you have dif­fi­culty look­ing after your garden?  Could you share it with someone who will care for and use it?

Or per­haps you’d like to grow fruit, veget­ables or flowers but don’t have access to a garden?

EGP matches garden own­ers with volun­teers who are look­ing for a bit of space to grow things on. Folk who are anxious because their gar­dens are get­ting out of hand can find help from volun­teers, and could also receive an agreed share of the pro­duce.  Volunteers look­ing for some­where to grow their own can enjoy a safe, rent free space in return for some of the pro­duce or a bit of help with tend­ing the garden.

If you or someone you know would like to find out more, please con­tact us.

We are now here: www.edinburghgardenpartners.org.uk and city wide again. Those inter­ested in being a garden part­ner either to grow your own or to share their garden can call 0131 220 5067.

  2. Hi all,

    Our won­der­ful garden share pro­ject became a char­ity back in Feb 2011. We are now called Edinburgh Garden Partners.

    If you want to grow your own and don’t have a garden, or if you would like to share your space and need help to look after your garden, then get in touch with the EGP team and become a garden part­ner!

    Look for­ward to hear­ing from you

    Hello, I have a reas­on­ably garden back and front. I havea busy life and can barely man­age one. I would love someone too take over the front. Flowers, fruit, veg, whatever would be thi­er pleas­ure. However I live in Port Seton, any help you can give me to find­ing a part­ner, I would be most grate­ful, Best wishes. Martine

    • Hi Martine, our scheme has now closed and was run in part­ner­ship with Care & repair Edinburgh. So I’m really sorry but not sure we help.

      Kind regards,
