With spring upon us, what better time could there be to head down to the farm, stretch your legs and check out the newborn animals? For residents of Edinburgh, Scotland, Gorgie City Farm is the ideal place, a haven of peace and quiet that just happens to have cows, sheep, goats, pigs and more. This is a great destination for the family.

But on a more important note, it reflects an example of sustainable urban agriculture┬áin the heart of one of Edinburgh’s densely populated, tenement-dominated suburbs. Both working farm and local attraction, the Gorgie City Farm has served a key role in the community for the past 30 years.

The website says: “We are dedicated to inspiring local people and tourists at our farm. We are proud to offer courses in agriculture, gardening and handicrafts for adults and children. We delight in educating and entertaining city kids with hands-on, exciting activities involving farm animals, gardening and exotic creatures.”
