Friends of Starbank Park
Friends of Starbank Park is a community group dedicated to restoring and improving Starbank Park in Edinburgh. The park is at the centre of a very active and caring neighbourhood. The Friends group has developed into a strong, friendly team, with two volunteer garden sessions on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Engaging with the local community, for example, the Brownies, local schools and the nursing home, the group is currently restoring the herbaceous border and the Rainbows are starting the groups’ Dahlias in pots. The Friends group grows herbs and vegetables as part of the Power of Food festival, and bee and butterfly friendly plants are prioritised. In 2017, the group looks forward to continuing to bring happiness to the local community through its events and garden park.
