The Lions' Gate Garden
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
- have fun
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].
