Friends of Starbank Park
A Friends group which nurtures a walled garden park in North Edinburgh. The group hosts lots of events throughout the year which bring the neighbourhood together and has just held its annual Easter Egg Hunt with over 500 children attending. The group loves being a hub for the community and this year it is building raised beds in a Victorian Kitchen garden style so that younger people, wheelchairs users and older people can work happily planting up the beds. The group will also be hosting planting groups from the Rainbows, Beavers and Edinburgh Academy Junior School garden club. It works together with a wide variety of groups: The Shoreline Project and St Columba’s Hospice to name a few. The group is looking forward to embracing this special ‘Year of Young People’ at Starbank Park.
