Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

Garvald Edinburgh has enjoyed a very good relationship with the Royal Botanic Garden for some time. In 2014 we worked together on the highly successful “Naturally” exhibition. Later that year the RBG

started work on rebuilding the Botanic Cottage.  The Cottage had been situated in Leith Walk and was saved from demolition by a community campaign. It has been carefully dismantled and rebuilt in the Demonstration Garden.  Garvald Edinburgh joinery workshop has been commissioned to make reproduction chairs for the Cottage.

Our daughter Annie is 29 and has been at Garvald nearly 5 years. When we visited, every workshop we went into was having coffee time, with lots of delicious home-made things to eat, and it gave us a great sense of welcome, warmth and hospitality. At Garvald they are so friendly, and all the communication is easy, the barriers just melt away.
