Shettleston Community Growing Project

If you would like the opportunity to grow your own vegetables, we have a few plots available this year. Thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund's Awards for All programme, we now have sessional gardening support workers to advise and assist new (and old!) plotholders at the allotment site, so there's never been a better time to get growing.

We're holding a taster session on site on Sunday 7 April 2013 (2 to 4pm, including free soup and refreshments) to give you an opportunity to find out more about becoming a plotholder and/or one of our Green Volunteers.

Growing vegetables in raised beds

Green Volunteers take part in a range of activities, including general maintenance and upgrading the allotment and community garden, practical activities throughout the local area e.g. removing weeds and planting trees, shrubs and flowers and special projects e.g. creating a new path in the community garden - see photo gallery and news item.

Our group welcomes new volunteers and is keen to hear from members of the public of any small spaces that are neglected and need transforming.
