Garden Makeover for Pilton Stress CentreI was delighted to launch the new garden at the Pilton Stress Centre. The garden was transformed from a derelict wilderness and will give users of the centre a safe and relaxing area to unwind, read a book or chat.

The Stress Centre is a community based health service based in Pilton which provides a focus, purpose and structure in people's lives. Its emphasis is on individuals working together to improve their mental health and well being and and that of the community. The garden project is the result of an initiative by Scottish Business in the Community (SBC) North Edinburgh and was carried out by a team of State Street Bank and Trust Company volunteers as part of Global Volunteer Day.
Out of the Blue is based in the old drill hall in Dalmeny Street and provides studio and production space and fosters creative projects. The Hall is particularly busy at the moment, as groups of unemployed youngsters get to grips with the finer points of a range of arts and crafts disciplines as part of the Gallery 37 training-for-work initiative.

The project gives the 16 to 24 year olds the opportunity to learn skills in jewellery and accessory-making, digital photography and screen printing, documentary video-making and millinery for professional artists.
