The Salisbury Centre has been in operation for almost 50 years, opening in 1973. The building is an altered Georgian villa from the 1800’s. It has several key character elements including a stained-glass window and pergola. The Salisbury Centre is a charity based on 4 pillars which are spirituality, psychological wellbeing, creativity, and eco-logical work.
The Centre runs a variety of community events including seasonal festivals, yoga, meditation, dance, drama, talks, seed saving and more. The Centre is home to Edinburgh’s first Seed Library. It also offers volunteering opportunities including gardening, seed library volunteers, meditation volunteers, library volunteers, film making, curating, community hosts for suppers and seasonal events and more.
The Salisbury Centre will be opening its doors on the 24th of September from 10:30-15:30 and offering tours at 10:30 and 12:30. These tours will be around 45 minutes long. Please take this opportunity to come and see the building, meditate in the garden and to have a tea or coffee in the garden.
