Shettleston Community Growing Project

My son Robbie (10) and I have been volunteering here for about 3 months, just in time to help harvest some of the communal fruit ... we used our share to make lots of delicious cakes (today's was apple and blackberry loaf but we've also made gooseberry).

It's easy to make friends here, there's a great community spirit. It's not difficult to spend 3 or 4 hours here at a time - we get so focused on the work that we lose track of time.
