Gilmerton House Kitchen Garden
Gilmerton House Kitchen Garden was formed to increase learning and knowledge through the facilitating of horticultural courses and the sharing of traditional skills. It seeks to maintain and protect physical and mental health by encouraging volunteering amongst groups vulnerable to poor mental health. The garden provides a safe and secure environment, whereby individuals gain work experience in a private but non commercially motivated setting. The work that they are doing will be relevant and needed. Produce from the garden will be supplied to a range of outlets, including local farmers’ markets to help sustain the enterprise beyond initial grant investment.
