Suntrap Garden

Evening Classes and Workshops for Autumn and Winter

As many of you may be aware Oatridge College notified us on Wednesday 9 June that they would no longer be involved with Suntrap Garden as they are withdrawing from using the garden as a teaching facility. 

At the moment consultation is going on with the National Trust for Scotland who are joint owners of the site.  The garden will remain open until Tuesday 31 August and may well continue to be open after that date of the college withdrawal.

It is therefore with huge sadness that we have to inform you that all evening classes and workshops are being cancelled as we cannot run them from Suntrap Garden and Oatridge College has decided not to transfer classes to their main campus.

We would like to thank everyone for their support over the years and hope that you have enjoyed the classes and that they have inspired you and relaxed you.

Having only now found out about this wonderful place, it is very sad that it is to close so soon. If it is on a greenbelt site, surely such a sale can be challenged.

With so many wealthy people living in Edinburgh, there must be some who would not wish to see this marvellous resource lost for ever. Where there is a will, there is a way.

Unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be the case. We can only keep on trying and hope that we can raise the money to buy it ourselves.
