We really enjoyed talking to everyone who came along to the Do It In Public exhibition a month or so ago; it was inspiring to realise how much energy and interest there is for creating more living, vibrant, exiciting urban places here in Edinburgh. As a result, we decided to take it further, out into the streets….
We are creating a pop-up garden at the St Mary’s Church Edinburgh Market! In collaboration with the Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust and Edinburgh Markets, we are hosting a market stall which celebrates how simple, fun and easy it is to get growing in your urban places. You’ll find somewhere to sit and relax, can plant something to take away with you, and will find heaps of information about how you can plant a place yourself or with a small group. The project demonstrates that you don’t need a complicated community group set up, a bank balance with loads of funding, or even a particularly big space to get growing. We can help you see how you can get started now, and transform the urban realm around you.
Find us at the top of Leith Walk / Broughton Street this weekend, 24th and 25th August 2013, any time from 11am – 5pm. Look forward to seeing you then !
