Gorgie Farm Picnic Area



Just before I left Gorgie Farm, a small transformation took place! The farm picnic area has been brightened up! Farm staff and volunteers spent a lot of time doing all this and it has made a real difference! It's an even nicer place to have lunch now!

The mosaics were made using crockery rejected by local second hand shops, with the help of Alchemy Arts, an Edinburgh organisation for socially inclusive, environmentally friendly arts and crafts.
I'm starting my new job today and will tell you more in the next couple of days. But I'll be back at the farm quite a lot and will certainly still be posting photos here!
