greenspace scotland is working with Glasgow City Council to support the development of a Food Growing Strategy for the city. Over the next two years, all Scottish Local Authorities will be required to develop a Local Food Growing Strategy as part of the implementation of Community Empowerment Act (2015).

greenspace scotland will be working in two areas within the city – one in the West and one in the South to identify local priorities and partners, map food growing which is happening on the ground and develop detailed proposals for community growing projects which can be taken forward quickly to ensure that the strategy begins to deliver change as soon as possible. The approach will then be rolled out to the rest of Glasgow (as appropriate).

There will be two events held to begin the process. Click on the link to reserve your place:

One Big Picnic One Big Community is a free event for the people by the people from 12-4pm on Sunday 3 September in George Square.

The aim of the event is to bring people together by creating a space for sharing food and a wee blether, sitting next to each other, showing understanding to differences regardless of background, cultural, religious, sexual orientation, social or educational status, homelessness or wealth. Highlighting Glasgow is indeed a city of caring people – people make Glasgow!

The event brings together community projects which prepare and serve free meals/provide food parcels on a regular basis  to those in need, such as the elderly, homeless and destitute. We believe that everyone has the right to good accessible food and should be treated fairly and with dignity. Therefore we will be serving wonderful dishes from around the world to all.

stpauls_garden01Earlier in the year pupils from a few of the local primary schools came along to Kingsway Community garden to plant various vegetable seeds in some of the communal raised beds.

Last week the pupils from St Paul’s Primary in Whiteinch popped back along to the garden to harvest their leeks.

Despite the cold they had a great time up at the garden and harvested quite a few leeks – which they took back to their school and cooked!
