Leith Community Crops in Pots Charity Number SCØ4422Ø (A Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation SCIO)
aims to encourage and support the people and organisations of Leith to grow food, vegetables and flowers for bees, in urban spaces, in order to improve health and well-being, community cohesion and the environment.
Growing food benefits your pocket, your health, your mood and the environment, and is particularly good for children.
We are showing the way, growing food in the heart of an urban community - yes, it can be done!
We aim to build a more rural lifestyle into this urban world. Well, this little part of the world we call Leith.
As our ideas take root, we should certainly meet the government targets for health and well-being, and whilst doing all this we too are growing environmental sustainability. Read our Development Plan here!

As our projects in the Leith community, schools and nurseries rely on the amazing work of volunteers we appreciate any donation which helps us to continue with the current projects and expand for the benefit of all.
Huge congratulations to Leithers!!!
