Save Our Old Town Guerrilla Gardener's stake a claim on land

Today citizens of the republic carried out Guerilla Gardening in a bid to highlight the plight of public land, assets and facilities being left to rot.

The kids enjoyed pulling out the enormous weeds and everyone enjoyed a well deserved summer solstice tea party that could be heard down the Canongate

After a hard day's toil they ended their community gardening and clean up of the Canongate Venture by planting a Rowan tree.

For those that don't know the Rowan Tree is renowned to offer protection to a building and the people around it and specifically protection from bad people. It is said that removing or even damaging a rowan tree brings havoc and bad luck to those that remove it.
