Growing Together is a project that gives residents the opportunity to grow their own fresh fruit and vegetables, with guidance and help along the way.
Anyone can get involved in Growing Together! The project is based in Craigshill and any residents can get involved. You don't need to be a tenant of Almond HA.
To get involved, email Barbara at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
This is a very exciting opportunity to learn how to grow your own food - and it's all free! We will provide you with everything you need and even give suggestions of recipes to make with fresh produce. It is also a great opportunity to meet local people, become more active and really make a difference to the place that you live.
The project is based in Craigshill and is open to all Craigshill residents.
Rowan Grove Community Garden – nestled between the houses, this garden is the largest growing space for vegetables, fruit and a range of flowers and shrubs. A great event space for the community
The Secret Garden in Forth Drive – a quiet walled garden filled with a variety of shrubs, flowers and a gorgeous cherry tree. A tranquil place to sit and enjoy the outdoors.
Hobart Street Community Garden – sited on the little hill behind Riverside Primary school, this is a working garden used to produce fruit and vegetable.
Let’s Get Cooking – the project runs cooking sessions in the Community Wing beside Riverside Primary School. You can also access a range of recipes and cooking demos on our YouTube channel.
Right now! The project is ongoing, and you can get involved at any point by emailing email@example.com. Our aim is to run this project and improve skills within the local community so that we all learn to gow, cook and eat nutritious food for the rest of our lives.
Everyone is welcome to visit the community gardens and attend any of the events and activities that are hosted in the gardens. Rowan Grove and Hobart Street need your help, if you can spare an hour or want to volunteer weekly we’d love to hear from you! There is no obligation and you can get involved as much or as little as you like!
