Granton Guided Walk
Thu, 4 August 2022
The Absent Trees of Granton cordially invite you to walk without them.
Your presence is requested on a walk from the reclaimed wastelands of Middle Harbour, Edinburgh (“Million Tree City” ) where trees grew before development, to the building site of Waterfront Avenue where trees have been felled for housing. We Wish We Were Here; we are in spirit.
Group activities before and on the walk will focus on the touch, smell and taste of trees, the power relationship between species, the importance of naming and local history in ‘belonging’, dreaming our own landscapes, and just exactly how much earth we need to thrive on.
