Community led environmental projects in the Southside of Glasgow.

Community Gardening

Urban Roots Community Gardeners

Every week, teams of volunteers work together around Toryglen maintaining and developing local community gardens.

We also have groups who meet and work weekly in Pollokshields at the Nan McKay Hall and the Shields Health Centre,  The People’s Garden at The Hall in Priesthill, Moogety Garden in Govan, Eden Garden in Carnwadric and several locations in Castlemilk.

The groups also help out with school grounds and nursery gardens,  building raised beds and keeping spaces tidy.

We only use organic methods in the gardens.  One of the aims of the project is to grow as much food as possible and what isn’t taken home by volunteers is redistributed back into the community.

We also sell some of our produce through local fruit and veg shops.

We are part of the Glasgow Local Food Network which is an informal network of organisations and individuals across Glasgow  who are passionate about producing and eating local food. Glasgow Local Food Network Map

 

 

 

Transform Your Space

Have you always looked at that empty plot of land near your house and longed to turn it into something beautiful?

Or maybe you want to work with your neighbours to brighten up the whole community?

We’ve got over 7 years experience of transforming empty,  underused spaces into beautiful places that can bring multiple benefits to local people. If you’d like us to help you,  or work with your group then get in touch.  Talk to us –  we’d love to help.  We work anywhere across the Southside.
