Porty & Leith Community Wind Turbine hits stumbling block in land negotiations | PEDAL – Portobello.
We are very disappointed that our plans for the first urban community wind turbine in Scotland have hit a stumbling block after the landowner, Scottish Water, changed their stance on the project at the start of this year.

Veg patch at Rennie Bridge Thanks Graham for sending the photo of the naked veg patch. It looks much bigger with the tree cut down and we might get much more planted than we originally thought. Thanks to everyone who came and collected the seeds to bring on at home. We can get these planted over the coming months but for now we should make a start on getting our paths laid and some of the directly grown seeds in the ground. Lets meet on Friday the 13th April from 10am – 2pm (but feel come and go in between these times) to get this project started!
