Shettleston Community Growing Project

February and March are busy times for sowing seeds and preparing gardens and allotments for the months ahead.

As part of our People and Communities funded ‘Green Volunteer’ project, Shettleston Community Growing Project is pleased to announce an important new FREE horticultural training and volunteering programme, running weekly on Tuesdays (4 Feb to 25 March, 10am to 4pm) and again on Sundays (9 Feb to 30 March, 10am to 4pm).

Training sessions are open to anyone who is interested in volunteering and learning basic gardening and food growing skills. Participants may be unemployed or working and looking for something to do in their free time. New plotholders and those on waiting lists at allotments are welcome to apply.

Training sessions will provide participants with the knowledge, skills and confidence to become an active volunteer at SCGP and other gardening/food growing projects. Certificates of attendance will be provided at the end of the sessions which may be beneficial for those seeking employment.

All tools, resources and refreshments will be provided. Participants should wear suitable clothing and footwear and bring a packed lunch.
