Community Garden

We have an established community garden where we grow, cook, and play together. Our sessions provide a space to socialise outdoors, create a pleasant space in the community and produce tasty fruit and vegetables to take home. 

Gardens and green spaces are associated with improved mental and physical health and wellbeing. Gardening and growing food reduces social isolation, increases self-esteem and builds friendships and networks across the community. 

  Adopt a raised bed    Interested in learning to grow your own produce? Adopt a raised bed from us and you can decide what to sow, grow and eat throughout the season. With led sessions and open access to our site, we can provide tailored support and will supply all materials required.  


Join our gardening group   We run drop-in sessions for families and adults twice a week during the summer months, and weekly in the winter. These sessions focus on our communal plots.  


 Community outreach  We work alongside local nurseries and schools delivering sessions across Cranhill.  Please get in touch here if you are a community group in Cranhill and would like to visit the garden - we can tailor sessions for your needs.   


Ready Set Grow - After School Gardening Club  Join us at our NEW weekly after school gardening club where you can learn about food, plants, bugs and bees! The gardening club will take place every Monday,   from 15:30pm - 16:30pm in our Community Garden. Children of all ages are welcome, accompanied by an adult.

Events

In April Garden volunteers embarked on a day trip to Scotlands capital city, Edinburgh, to experience some Scottish culture. Since making Scotland their home, many of the attendees had never left Glasgow and so were eager to explore.

The day trip was volunteer led, with attendees choosing to visit Edinburgh Castle, Palace of Holyrood and Edinburgh Royal Botanic Gardens, walk along the Royal Mile and visit the Camera Obscura exhibition. To finish they day they enjoy a hearty meal together.
