Garden Group

Gardening, composting and plant cultivation in The Garden Group


The focus of the Garden Group's work is Tiphereth's large community garden which includes a main vegetable garden (growing vegetables for use by the May Group's cooking group), flower beds, polytunnels, and space for firewood production.


Members of the Garden Group can learn to seed, cultivate and harvest plants, and can complete Borders College skills accreditation qualifications on aspects of gardening if they wish.


The Garden Group also focus on the weekly green waste collection around Colinton (on behalf of City of Edinburgh Council), delivering this green waste to our quarry composting site.
