When you walk round the Granton area of Edinburgh you can't help but notice the wonderful mini gardens that have popped up (and continue to pop up!) on street corners around the area, like this one
These thriving plots are the work of Granton Community Gardeners, a community based project that is encouraging local people to get involved in food growing.
The group then use the food they grow (along with donated food) in community meals. Last night, I went along for the first time to their community supper in Granton Parish Church. I was very impressed by the delicious vegetarian shepherd's pie. It was great to see so many people enjoying the food and conversation too.
