The Green Wellies group is for those who would like to make improvements to Edinburgh’s greenspaces and their own wellbeing.

On the last Saturday of each month, you can make practical improvements to greenspaces in Edinburgh and at the same time give your wellbeing a boost. Projects involve cutting back vegetation, removing invasive plants and shrubs, clearing up litter, planting trees and wildflowers while getting to know other people!

Green Wellies is led by Green Team staff who understand the benefit of doing something practical and positive with others for our own mental and physical wellbeing.
