The Four Winds Inspiration Centre is unfortunately having to close.  The lease on their ‘Woodyard’ in Inverleith Park is ending and the Edinburgh council needs the land back.

Established in 1998, the Environmental Education & Craft based Charity,  is a grass roots organisation, working for the benefit of present and future generations

They have been providing  a platform for positive community action & interaction in relation to important social and environmental issues.

If you had considered joining one of their courses, but never got round to it, now is the time to get in touch!  Further details about the group and the remaining courses can be found on their website
