Gardening/Grow Your Own
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.
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.

We have lots of gardening sessions for children and young people in Milton and Royston. We work with primary and secondary schools, and host sessions in our gardens and growing spaces.
In Milton garden it’s Monday’s from 4.00pm to 5.30pm with 7-10 year olds learn about planting and having fun growing their own vegetables.
With our Wriggle Room project we support Milton primary schools to create their own wormeries, so young people learn about managing food
waste and making their own compost. We organise bug hunting and can help create child friendly growing spaces and wildlife habitats, making bug hotels and the like!!
