Milton Road Community Garden – Edinburgh College Milton Road Campus

This project started as a student initiative. After a year in planning, work started on the ground in September 2012 with the help of the new community garden coordinator appointed by the college.

The aim behind the Milton Road Community Garden is to provide easier access to fresh vegetables fruit for the students, members of staff and the community around the College. Garden users can either share space (in groups of 3 or 4), to grow their own fruit and vegetables or come along as volunteers and work on the communal growing spaces. As well as providing fresh produce, the aim is to encourage healthier life styles through discovering and developing new tastes, exercising outside and socialising with new people.
