Shettleston Community Growing Project

Fundraising is now underway to help re-build our site after the recent fire.

We've had many generous donations from individuals and businesses and a number of funders are also helping us with re-building costs. Even the kids have got involved with the whole of St. Paul’s Primary school taking part in a fundraising run around the school grounds, raising a massive £1,677!

Having got over the shock and disappointment the SCGP Board is now considering how to make the best of the situation by improving our facilities rather than just replacing what was lost.

We are open to suggestions from our members as to what YOU think we should have on the project site. Please let us know what you think by emailing suggestions to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We'll circulate some fully costed proposals to our members shortly, to be followed by a full discussion of the options at our last Souper Sunday of 2015 on Sunday 6th December (time still to be confirmed).

In the meantime, one of our plotholders, Andy, has written an article to share his perspective on recent events. We hope you enjoy it.
