Shettleston Community Growing Project

Our Green Volunteer Programme enables people of all ages and abilities to get involved in gardening, grounds maintenance and conservation activities on the SCGP site and elsewhere in the local area. If you would like to get to take part in healthy, outdoor activities but don’t fancy becoming a plot-holder this might be for you. Green Volunteer sessions take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Sundays for most of the year, only taking a break in December and January. An experienced leader is always on hand to direct the work and to provide on the job training and there are also opportunities to take part in more structured training events that we run at various times in the year.

The Green Volunteer programme is a great way of getting fit, making new friends and learning new skills, while doing something worthwhile to improve the local area. Volunteering can also help people gain valuable experience and knowledge that might lead to employment opportunities or further education.

The SCGP is very proud to have won a Volunteer Friendly Award for its work with volunteers.
