Shettleston Community Growing Project


Our Project

Shettleston Community Growing Project (SCGP) was set up in 2009 by local people who wished to grow food for themselves and their families. With assistance from Shettleston Housing Association and Glasgow City Council a suitable site was identified, and funding was secured from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund to turn the derelict and unloved space into an attractive and productive community allotment.

Year after year it has continued to grow and now incorporates a Community Garden and Wild area complete with pond which attracts lots of wildlife, from newts to hedgehogs.

Onsite we have 50 raised beds, soft fruit area, herb garden,polytunnel and composting toilet and also the luxury of a fully working kitchen container complete with electricity and running water. Volunteers to help us maintain the site are welcome to come and join us from March till September each year and help us make a difference to the community.

We also have a club for young people aged between 7 and 12 years of age called The Smelly Welly Club that runs from Easter to Halloween each year.

For any information on the project please email or call the details at top of page.
