Leith Community Crops in Pots (LCCiP) is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, set up to promote healthy, inclusive and environmentally sustainable food production and consumption in Leith.
The organisation’s mission is: “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 environment.”
Protecting the biosphere and building community through good food choices!
Connecting with nature and saving money!
We are for a happy, healthy, leafy Leith. 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. Read our Development Plan here!
Apple Trees for Sale!
We now have apple trees for sale, direct from our tree nursery at the croft! There a number of varieties, dessert, and cooking, all of which are suitable for our northern climate.
Get your order in quickly as we have limited quantities of each variety. Another reason for not delaying is that now (before winter sets in) is the very best time to be tree planting.
Comes with a tree planting kit (worth £5), to support and protect your tree in its new home includes a tree guard, support stakes and ties, and a mulch mat.
