Welcome to our Tiny Forest

Peacocktail Close’s Wee Forest was planted in January 2022 by local residents, school students from a local primary school and environmental artist Jonathan Baxter, working with Art Walk Projects and Craigmillar Now. It is located in Peacocktail Close and was funded by NatureScot, in collaboration with the City of Edinburgh Council who provided the land.
