Duddingston Conservation Society are in charge of a large area of land and bring people together from a wide range of ages, backgrounds and interests to grow food and interact with nature. They have a herb garden, many rare apple tree varieties, and a well-stocked vegetable garden. We will be getting more involved with this site, to learn skills from them and document their engagement with their land.

Our time on site.
