New Year tours at Granton’s lost garden

Lots of ideas and plans for the new year and sharing the garden with more visitors already started on January 6th with our free drop-in monthly guided walks. The first Saturday of the month from noon until 2ish we hope can become a regular event over the spring. To let people of all ages explore and take part in the restoration of this heritage environment.

2018 January tour
Great enthusiasm and positive feedback from a walking group visiting for the first time Jan 2018!

We are now planning regular twice weekly mini-sessions over the coming months to continue work begun by our core group of volunteers during our first year in the garden. So many great ideas and local involvement to build on in 2018, planning the community orchard, kitchen garden and much more. Granton Castle Walled Garden, Dec 2017

We will be at the garden on a Wednesday and Sunday from 11-1pm, beginning on the 10th January. Wrap up warmly if you are coming along and wear sturdy boots or wellies, a big hat and gloves.

FGCG Worksessions flier 2018 Spring
Please be aware the garden restoration is still in its infancy, being ‘tamed’ a little at a time and not fully accessible. There aren’t any toilets or indoor heated space, quite a few hazards still and dirt paths which can get muddy.
All the best for 2018 and hope to see you at Granton’s lost castle garden this spring. Please get in touch via the contacts page if you would like to find out how to join in with volunteer sessions and haven’t been along before. Or you could drop-in and chat with members at our next free guided tour afternoon, Saturday 3rd Feb at noon.
