Shettleston Community Growing Project

With winter now well and truly upon us, the Shettleston Community Growing Project's site at Eckford Street is now pretty much in hibernation until the spring. However, weather permitting, the volunteer group is continuing to work in the community garden and the committee is already getting organised for 2012.

The group's AGM is planned for 26 January at which both existing and new members will be welcome.

Plans for the second phase of the project, which will see an expansion into the derelict area of ground adjacent to the main site at Eckford Street, are still being progressed. A slight hitch with the planning application has held things up but the group is hopeful that this will be resolved soon and work can start in early January.

With the new site extension, there will be more opportunities for Shettleston and Tollcross residents to get involved and start growing their own vegetables. If you are interested, please get in touch with Marion Bate, Project Co-ordinator, on 07530 985 483 or at the Shettleston Housing Association office on 0141 763 0511.
