We're still collecting donations

On the 18th March 2021 we'd raised £1,515 with 13 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Leith Community Crops in Pots is a grassroots organisation based in a densely populated and deprived urban area. We aim to advance environmental protection and foster well-being by creating access to nature and good food and providing environmental education to kids and adults.

Our croft houses a dilapidated old pavilion building – we currently store tools and toilets there, but the leaking roof and general disrepair make it near impossible to use. At the same time, our organisation needs a stable home. We want to raise match-funding to renovate the building. The present campaign will kickstart this by providing essential initial refurbishment to the roof, and the main space.

When we realise the full vision of the repair, the space will provide a community café, two meeting rooms for community members, a workshop space, an office and an outbuilding. This building will be an essential point to nurture encounters, mutual support and learning across the diverse community of Leith. This will increase the communities’ resilience and help us continue our work to foster well-being, nature connection and biodiversity.
