Shettleston Community Growing Project

The 2071 square metre site consists of over 50 raised beds for individual and group use. The beds are ideal for food growing in urban areas where ground contamination prevents direct digging into the soil and are perfect for people new to gardening. A huge variety of produce can be grown in these spaces and our members have successfully sown, grown, harvested and eaten everything from peas, beans and carrots to garlic, pumpkins and sweet corn. The site also has greenhouse spaces and a poly-tunnel for growing less hardy plants like tomatoes or aubergines and for potting on seedlings.

People sign up for plots and become members of the SCGP every February but there are usually opportunities to get involved at other times during the year.
