Shettleston Community Growing Project

The Smelly Welly Club opened its doors again for the new season, welcoming back familiar faces from last year and new faces for this year. Already the members have been hard at work with Louise from Froglife creating a new bog area for the pond and planting lots of wild flowers in the wildlife garden. We were also fortunate to have been chosen to launch Action Earth with Volunteering Matters, a day that was enjoyed by everyone.

The raised beds have been planted up with lots of vegetables and fruit to be enjoyed by the members in the next few months. Hanging baskets have been planted up and already the difference is remarkable. With the help of our two new youth workers, Stacey and Suzanne, the club will go from strength to strength.

Members are also looking forward to their first of many trips this year - Aviemore Youth Hostel for a weekend of canoeing, mountain biking, sailing and walking...I am so jealous.Unfortunately spaces are now filled for this trip, but there will be others throughout the year for members.

If all this sounds like something you would be interested and who wouldn't be interested in being outdoors and healthy eating then contact us....

The club is open for 8 - 12 year olds on Tuesdays and Thursdays (3.30 pm - 5.30 pm). Contact Kenny on 07879 333846 or email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. during office hours.
