Calling all willing weeders! If you've been down to our fledgling community veg garden at the Rennie Bridge, you'll see that it's taking shape. The terracing has just about survived the torrential downpours, and there's plenty of new planting. We need more help though. A few greenfingers to keep the weeds at bay.
Not as easy as you might think because we're also cultivating green manure, right amongst the weeds. So you may need a bit of a talk through.
If you can help in any way, let us know. We're looking for regular help AND potterers (is that a word?) So please leave a comment here, or email us at

So far we've planted ... cabbages, purple sprouting broccoli, perpetual spinach, ruby chard, swiss chard, cress, swede, courgette, runner beans, climbing French beans, carrots, radish (ready to pick now), coriander, mangetouts, rocket, lettuce (little gem and looseleaf cut and come again), rosemary, rhubarb, gooseberry AND green manures: red clover, phacelia and mustard AND a few flowers: cornflower, nasturtium, poached eggs, borage, sunflowers. Phew!
Well done to our incredible edible team!

4 students from Edinburgh University recently carried out local consultation on behalf of Musselburgh Transition Toun, on the need for a community garden at the back of Musselburgh East Community Learning Centre (MECLC). This snapshot presents the findings from the consultations which were held over a 6 week period from mid April to June 2012.

The group hopes to take forward the positive findings from this research and will be seeking funding and support to develop the garden.
