Sharing Gardens, Sharing Lives: 11 years of Edinburgh Garden Partners
(Fri 2 Sep - Sun 2 Oct)
This exhibition shows a selection of the garden partnerships supported by Edinburgh Garden Partners taken by photographer Fern Farmer over the summer of 2022 - their 11th year of operation.
A garden partnership consists of a person with a garden that they are no longer able, to access or make the most of, and a volunteer who sets up a vegetable plot within their garden space. Produce grown is shared between volunteer and garden owner.
Edinburgh Garden Partners is a community organisation active across Edinburgh. We aim to strengthen communities by creating relationships between people who want a space to grow and those who have garden space to share. We connect people of different ages, abilities, and backgrounds to build a shared gardening movement through the exchange of skills, knowledge, and life experience.
This exhibition is as a way to celebrate those who are currently involved in Edinburgh Garden Partners, those who have been involved over the years and to reach out to others who might be interested!
This event is free and non-ticketed
