On Saturday February 7, Greener Leith is urging you to do two things, in this order…
First, come to the Leith Links Children’s Orchard, and help us prune some trees (don’t worry, all training and equipment will be provided.)
Free lunch and training from expert gardener Ben Dell will be provided for the 15 volunteers who book first. The event starts at 11am and finishes at 2pm and you can find out more by clicking here.
Fortunately, the Leith Decides community budgeting event finishes at 3pm. This means, once you’ve done a bit of pruning in the open air, you can then nip across to the Leith Community Centre in the Kirkgate to cast your vote on which local projects should get a share of the £22,000 council funding for 2015.
You can find out more about the event and the 37 local projects looking for your support on the Leith Neighbourhood Partnership website.
