Greenyonder Tours is an Edinburgh-based company, offering short walking tours around the city that bring you closer to people and places you'd be unlikely to encounter otherwise, all on a green theme. In 2018, we're celebrating Greenyonder's 10th birthday.


Jean Bareham founded Greenyonder in summer 2008. Jean says: 'At first I had an idea of taking people to a mixture of gardens, from pretty, traditional gardens to those small, local ones that so often bind communities together. Then that extended to bringing in some social history, and a taking a look at what's happening in those local neighbourhoods today. I really pride myself on keeping up-to-date with the local communities we visit. So, although gardens, plants and green space still feature in the tours, guests can look forward to seeing a more people-centred side of Edinburgh too.'


Jenny Mugford will be leading some Hidden Gardens of the Royal Mile tours over the Edinburgh Fringe. Jenny is a very talented florist and flower grower based in South Ayrshire, working throughout Scotland through her company Flowermug. She has a degree in Scottish Literature, and likes to explore the history, folklore and healing qualities of the materials she uses.
