Partick Community Growing Project

The Partick Community Growing Project has transformed a disused play park in the area behind Gullane, Anderson and Purdon Streets into a welcoming and inclusive community growing space.

In 2013 the project was awarded a grant of £209,271 by the Big Lottery Fund Scotland and since then it has been all systems go.

Our main contractor, Carillion, got involved by clearing the site in preparation for the building works.

Work on developing the growing space was completed in April 2014 and the  project members  rolled their sleeves up and got on with planting. Watch the film for the story of our first successful season of the growing project.

All nine beds at the growing project have been assigned. Some are allocated to local people and others for community groups. Groups involved at present are The Annexe, The Purdon Street Day Care Centre (for the elderly), and Aspire Housing.

Watch the film about the project’s first open day.

The project is now run independently by a constituted Committee. They have a waiting list for anyone who is interested in taking on a bed. There are other ways to get involved even if you don’t have a raised bed assigned to you, so please get in touch and find out what’s happening.
