Hasten Slowly event at The Lions' Gate

The Lions’ Gate is an imaginative, urban, permaculture habitat based at Edinburgh Napier University’s Merchiston Campus providing – garden, allotment, outdoor laboratory, venue, performance, re-wilding, and relaxation space. It is a LAND Learner Project.

The onset of the pandemic has highlighted the immediate need for outdoor places that inspire and protect. Here, students, staff, local and international communities can safely;

  • explore solutions to the environmental concerns of our age
  • immerse in nature for restorative health
  • investigate the impact of digital technology on the environment
  • learn how to grow, nurture, and harvest natural abundance
  • think and do local
  • share knowledge
  • perform
  • have fun

For more details see our gardens and resources pages.

In a nutshell, The Lions’ Gate is an inclusive regenerative gardens project that seeks to ‘create the right habitat for people to empower themselves’ [Graham Bell].
