Who we are
“Our aim is to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in Edinburgh through providing opportunities to participate in community growing activities.”
Bridgend Growing Communities is a charitable company limited by guarantee based at Bridgend Community Allotments in Edinburgh. We use community growing to bring about positive changes for both communities and individuals.
Our projects promote social inclusion, build community capacity, develop individual’s skills, and sustain healthy lifestyles, particularly in areas of social deprivation.
We are already working with several organisations that recognise that we have the skills, experience and facilities to support vulnerable and excluded groups and individuals to engage. We want to continue to maintain our existing partnerships and develop new ones.
We are always open to new ideas and new initiatives that will help us meet our ambitions.
