Balerno Village Gardeners
Formerly known as Friends of Main Street Balerno and supported by Balerno Village Trust (BVT) this group of volunteer gardeners is committed to improving the planted areas and general landscape in Balerno by growing a variety of colourful, sustainable, and insect-friendly plants. The group maintains planted areas in the Main Street, and the vegetable plot in NTS Malleny Garden, and encourages other members of the community of all ages to get involved in gardening with the group or on their own. At times, the group offers produce to the local community at its’ monthly farmers market. In addition to BVT it is also supported by businesses and residents in the Main Street, the City of Edinburgh Council, Balerno Parish Church, NTS and local charitable groups.
