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.
Here is how you can get involved:
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.
We work alongside local nurseries and schools delivering sessions across Cranhill. Please get in touch (enquiry form link) if you are a community group in Cranhill and would like to visit the garden – we can tailor sessions for your needs.
The Community meal provides a friendly and welcoming environment for members of the local community (and further afield) to enjoy an evening meal together each month. The community meal is a free event for all and takes place on the last Wednesday of each month. For times, please check the programme of events (link).
We deliver blocks of cooking workshops throughout the year. Recent blocks have included our slow cooker club and soup club, adapted to cook-along at home.
