Small Green Spaces

Small Green Spaces is a new social enterprise in Edinburgh, set up by three friends with over twelve years of experience of community gardening. They are dedicated to turning empty city spaces into Small Green Spaces, using locally and ethically sourced products to create long lasting mini-gardens. No space is too small!

Supporting local community projects is central to their business. Wherever possible the products (pots, plants, compost and decorations) they use are sourced from community groups like Gorgie City Farm, Redhall Walled Garden and the Columcille Centre. These projects do fantastic work with volunteers who have mental health problems and learning difficulties, young people excluded from school, people recovering from substance misuse, ex-offenders, and the long term unemployed, breaking down barriers, building self esteem and encouraging physical and mental well-being through therapeutic gardening, composting, art and woodworking.

By using the products produced by these community projects, they are supporting their work, helping them generate income and become less grant dependent. They are supporting local businesses, and helping reduce carbon footprint by using locally sourced products, delivered to your door so you don’t have to drive to out of town garden centres.
