Free training workshops will be running weekly on Sundays (starting on 8 February) and Tuesdays (starting on 10 February) from 10am to 12noon at our site on Eckford Street. Come along and learn how to grow your own fruit, flowers and vegetables. Sessional staff will remain on site until 4pm on Sundays and Tuesdays to help plotholders with their own plots and organise general maintenance and preparation of communal areas for the growing season.

The Big Shettleston Sleepover is an organised event taking place in our community garden overnight on Friday 20 March (starts at 8pm) - it will be a fun way to increase awareness of fuel poverty in our community and join together to raise funds to help people keep warm in winter. For those who don't want to sleep out overnight, we've lots of other opportunities for you to get involved and support the event - come along to the information session on 5 February (see above). Look out for the official launch of the Big Shettleston Sleepover next to the Shettleston giraffe (mural) on the morning of Friday 6 February ...
