Community led environmental projects in the Southside of Glasgow.

Courses

We have developed a number of adaptable environmental and food related courses and workshops.

We run these courses at different times of the year –  follow us on Facebook and Twitter for up to date info.  We can also come to you to deliver any of these with your group.

To find out more about any of these courses please get in touch with us on projects@urbanroots.org.uk or phone the office on 0141 613 2766

Grow Your Own

Grow Your Own is an 16 hour programme,  normally taught over 8 weeks that covers a wide range of topics:

– Site observation,  planning and site design

– Propagating,  taking cuttings and root division.

– Growing on,  planting out,  crop families and rotations

– Composting,  pests and diseases,  harvest and saving seed.

Our adaptable format means it can be run as a shorter course if need be.  We can cater for individual or group requirements,  and from total beginners to more experienced gardeners.  The course involves a mixture of theoretical and practical elements.

Cookery Courses

We run regular six week cookery courses which are adapted to the setting.  The Great Grub course teaches cooking skills,  healthy diets and nutrition, eating well on a budget and highlights the environmental impacts of our food system.
