Wester Hailes Growing Communities is a community greenspace charity which supports three community gardens in Wester Hailes at; the Calders, Clovenstone, and Murrayburn & Hailesland.

Our School Farm project at Canal View and Sighthill Primary Schools, teaches children to grow food and learn about nature.  We also deliver a horticulture course for pupils at Wester Hailes High School.

Our community growing project grows fresh fruit and vegetables at the community gardens for the local Food Pantry.

Our next goal is to increase provision of community facilities.  We are working towards the construction of a new community centre for Dumbryden, Murrayburn & Hailesland – we will be taking ownership of the site in 2024.  We are also supporting Calders Regeneration Trust to renovate the Janitors Flat into a community space.

Full website expected later this year.
