Welcome to our Tiny Forest

This Wee Forest was planted on the 2nd of March, 2023 by community volunteers and Granton Crescent Primary School children, during a planting day event led by Earthwatch Europe and Edinburgh and Lothian Green Space Trust. It was funded by The Banister Charitable Trust, in collaboration with City of Edinburgh Council who provided the land. There is an outdoor classroom area that can be used by both schools and local residents.
