Volunteers will take part in a major clean-up to get a much-loved community farm back into shape.

Gorgie City Farm, in Edinburgh, will reopen at the end of the month after surviving a closure threat.

Charity LOVE Learning was appointed as its new operator last month and will hold a series of preparation days over the next couple of weeks.

Lynn Bell, CEO of LOVE Learning, said: “We are asking anyone that might have been involved with Gorgie City Farm in the past, may have a fond childhood memory of the farm or that simply wants to come and give us a hand to contact us ahead of the opening.”

The farm, which was last year visited by the Queen, is home to around 100 animals and welcomed around 200,000 visitors following a previous closure threat in 2016.

Volunteers to take part in the clean-up on February 15, 16, 22 and 23 can email [email protected]
