We're ecstatic as this is only our third growing season. The stars of the show were Ben and Josephine from our Smelly Welly Club ...

And the winner is ...

In recognition of the commitment and hard work of all those involved, the group was previously awarded the Grow Green with Glasgow Award in 2011 and in 2012 we were awarded the ReGen Star Award. And just last month, Libby McArthur (River City actress) praised our project for its achievements in an article for the Daily Record magazine.

 

In November 2012, as part of Glasgow City Council’s Stalled Spaces Initiative, the project was nominated and short-listed for a Eurocities Award and, at the beginning of June, we were thrilled to hear that the Council's Stalled Spaces Initiative had won the City to City Barcelona FAD Award 2013.
