Shettleston Community Growing Project

Children aged 8 to 12 are welcome to join the Smelly Welly Club, our dedicated children’s wing. The SWC gives young people the opportunity to get involved in healthy outdoor activities and offers a mixture of food growing, cooking, arts and crafts, practical conservation work, games, bush-craft, trips and lots more. The SWC meets as an after-school club during term time (until the clocks go back each October, resuming in April) and as a holiday club during the Easter, summer and October break. Sessions are delivered by qualified and PVG checked youth workers.

The SCGP also welcomes secondary school age young people, enabling them to get involved in volunteering, taking part in award schemes like the John Muir Award or the Duke of Edinburgh Award and enjoying a range of interesting outdoor activities.
