greenspace scotland is working with Glasgow City Council to support the development of a Food Growing Strategy for the city. All Scottish Local Authorities are required to develop a Local Food Growing Strategy as part of the implementation of Community Empowerment Act (2015).
We will be hosting 8 workshops across 19 wards in Glasgow between February and May 2019 to get an understanding of current food growing, to generate interest in food growing and to identify potential growing sites.
Three of the 8 workshops will highlight a specific theme in relation to community food growing as well as covering local issues – the themes are social enterprise, outdoor learning and health.
This event on 7 February is the first of the workhops and will focus on the Shettleston + Baillieston wards of the City.
It is free to attend the event, but to help us plan and organise catering (we will start with soup & a roll and tea/coffee will be on offer) we are asking people to sign up.
