Shettleston Community Growing Project

An exciting and wide-ranging Wildlife Garden Festival is taking place in Glasgow from 9 to 30 September and our fantastic Smelly Welly Club is hosting an event as part of the Festival on Thursday 18 September from 2-4pm.

Kids will get the chance to learn a whole host of gardening tips, as well as having a bit of fun too with a range of great outdoor activities.

The festival is part of Giving Nature a Home in Glasgow, an RSPB Scotland initiative in partnership with Glasgow Life and Glasgow City Council, which aims to reconnect people with Glasgow's urban green spaces.

Many people are not aware of the opportunities for getting close to nature in the city. And as in cities and towns throughout Britain, children spend much of their time indoors, rather than out at play and exploring nature.  

We hope you can join us in connecting children, families and community groups to create a city-wide wildlife garden, and celebrate nature within Glasgow.
