Circle’s Haven Project was successful in securing a £350 grant from Edinburgh & Lothian Greenspace Trust for the development of the garden space. Pete, Haven’s dads worker, along with one of the dads, got the ground ready for planting in March with the first seeds going into the ground with help from the Dad’s Community Group during the Easter break.
The raised beds have 80 separate square foot plots that can be cultivated for edible produce by children and families with support from Circle staff. Everything you need is at the Haven and if you want to book and use a plot please contact Pete or Alex at the office on 332 9269.
Last year the Becoming Dad’s group made an excellent Green Tomato & Chilli Chutney exclusively from produce planted in the garden – please contact Pete for the recipe!!
