Great news for Shettleston Community Growing Project

The Shettleston Community Growing Project is delighted to report that the National Lottery Community Fund has awarded the project follow-on funding for the next three years. The award will pay for the project coordinator post, which is central to allow the good work to continue: helping local people grow food for their families, getting children involved through the Smelly Welly club after- school and holiday programme, running a volunteer programme, working with local schools and delivering a programme of special events for the whole community.
