About



Bridgend Growing Communities is an organic community garden and allotment project based in Edinburgh that aims to give participants a sense of personal effectiveness and well being.  We promote the close connections between food, physical activity, the natural environment and working outdoors in our Craigmillar area facility.

BGC is an accessible hub for people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to gain the skills and confidence to garden and to grow healthy food for themselves.

We engage in a number of ways, from open access volunteer sessions to specific programs of work to develop life and employablity skills for people referred from partner organisations such as Access To Industry, Health In Mind, StreetWork, SEHLI and the Gowrie Care Trust.

Bridgend Growing Communities is a Scottish Company Limited by Guarantee (SC037668) and a registered charity (SC042318)
