Khalid Bashir - Community Garden Coordinator and Sessions Facilitator
Originally from Sudan, Khalid moved to Edinburgh to do a master degree in Project Management at Heriot Watt University, after he had studied Engineering in Shanghai and worked there for some time.
For several years he managed his own business in Edinburgh. However since seriously growing his own fruits and vegetables, he has shifted his focus to sustainability and community engagement.
He has over seven years experience of working as a garden consultant and project coordinator for a number of community gardening projects in Edinburgh.
Working for the Bridgend community allotment, he has witnessed the transformation of Bridgend Farmhouse right from the beginning, at times as bystander and at times as volunteer.
Khalid, who lives locally, is delighted that Bridgend community allotment is now part of Bridgend Farmhouse and he has become a member of this superb team.
