About our Royston project:

HERE/aprons.jpg
North Glasgow Community Food Initiative’s ‘Healthier Eating Royston Experience’ (HERE) project will, over two years, help bring about improvements to local eating habits.  It is estimated that a minimum of 800 residents of the Royston area will benefit from the project including, families, young people, older people and those with addiction needs.  The project which is funded by the Big Lottery fund through the Our Place programme will provide the local community with, increased access to affordable fruit and vegetables, improved health through healthy eating support and increased knowledge and experience of growing food.  HERE is delivering a range of activities some of which are outlined below:

Fruit and Veg
Our newest Barra has started up in the office at the Spire View Housing Association on a Thursday between 10am and 12pm. (42 Tharsis Street, Royston)

Blochairn Housing Association barra is still on between 2.30pm and 4pm on a Monday (1 Blochairn Road, Glasgow).

We hope our "Veg Van" project will be on the road in 2014 to deliver fruit and veg. Watch this space for more information.
