Welcome to Herbspace Community Interest Company. Founded at the end of 2016, we are a not for profit social enterprise, growing herbs in East Lothian.
We are joined in this endeavour by young people who work with us. Herbspace offers them a space where they can contribute ideas, mix socially and gain confidence, as well as learn gardening and business skills and connect with nature – elements that all support physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Our core purpose is to support these young people as they grow and find their place in the world. In addition through our work and the selling of herbal teas and vinegars we are raising awareness of the importance of young people’s wellbeing in the community.
As our herbs become established we are developing a range of herbal teas and vinegars based on the herbs we grow and others we forage in the local area. All income from selling our products is invested back into the business enabling us to continue supporting our young people.
