This event marks a special moment in Granton Castle Walled Gardens history, the anniversary of the ‘Rough Wooing’. Join us to find out more about the colourful history of this special place, see how the garden is being transformed and take part in a range of activities.

All are welcome to this family-friendly drop-in event, where you can expect:

- Hands-on gardening activities
- Have-a-go creative activities inspired by nature
- Yoga in the garden
- Food and drink made with local produce
- Unique artworks created by local groups and Edinburgh College of Art Students
- An interactive trail to help you navigate the garden and learn about its colourful history
- The opportunity to meet local groups and organisations

The fun way how to get people to engage creatively we are calling for a piece of leafy bunting which anyone can contribute and will be displayed on the event:

We’d love to create a strip of bunting long enough to connect the sea and the garden to mark the anniversary of the 'Rough Wooing' when ships landed on the beach and attacked Granton Castle. More info is on our Facebook page link above.

If you and/or a group you are part of would like to contribute to this event, create a piece for our leafy bunting or help out with the garden in general, please get in touch on grantongarden@gmail.com
