special 10th birthday charity toursHelp Refugees gardening project

As part of Greenyonder's 10th Birthday celebrations in 2018, join Jean on a special Hidden Gardens of the Royal Mile tour on 12th May and at the same time support Help Refugees. You can also give a place on the tour as a gift to someone else.


Help Refugees is a dynamic UK charity which supports 70 grassroots refugee projects in northern France, Greece, Italy, Serbia, Turkey, Lebanon and Syria.


About the tours In recent years, Hidden Gardens of the Royal Mile has been available only during the Edinburgh Fringe in August, and for private bookings at other times. So this is a rare opportunity to join in this very popular tour outwith August, without making a private booking. To make the tours on 12th May extra special, we'll visit a couple of surprise gardens as well as all the old favourites.Help Refugees logo


Where and when are the tours? 12th May 2018 at 11.00am and 3.00pm, leaving from outside John Knox House, 43 High Street, Edinburgh EH1 1SR, and finishing at the bottom of Canongate. Each tour will last just under two hours. The 11.00am tour is now fully booked, so I am allocating all further bookings to the 3.00pm tour.


Restrictions: Places are by voluntary donation and are exclusively for one of the charity tours on 12th May 2018. Places are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.
