Springburn Food Hub has two fantastic community allotment spaces within Springburn allotments; one a focused children’s gardening space, the other focused on volunteer gardening.
We have weekly volunteer gardening sessions, as well as hosting gardening education sessions, children’s gardening sessions, and partner group work. We are keen to make this safe, green haven available to the Springburn community – to learn to grow your own vegetables, to help with our community growing activities, or simply to enjoy being outdoors in nature.
All the produce we grow is available to the Springburn community. We use it to cook our community meals, and any surplus is available to take home and cook.
Throughout the year we run workshops and events. Keep your eyes peeled on our website and social media pages to stay updated on new courses and workshops such as food growing, composting, upcycling, landscaping and family-friendly events.
Are you interested in learning to grow your own fruit or vegetables or interested in looking after a garden? Come and join us on our plot in Springburn Allotments and help us to grow tasty fruit and veggies for the community. No experience necessary and all skill-levels welcome!
Our Teeny Greenies play-groups give local parents/ carers and their wee ones a chance to spend precious time together outdoors in the garden. We’re here in all seasons and all weathers – just remember to wrap up warm for winter sessions – we have a greenhouse to shelter in if it’s all too wet and blustery, and can lend out wee wellies if needed.
Activities vary from week to week. All ages welcome, from birth onwards. The sessions are FREE to attend.
From sowing seeds to harvesting crops, we show young people the ropes and let them enjoy the process of gardening. The young planters are also kept busy with tasting new things, nature crafts and wild play.
If your organisation, school, club or youth group, would like us to run a gardening and nature based activities then please get in touch!
Please check back here regularly and follow our social media to find out details of upcoming gardening activities.
