GAF Workshop: Promoting Glasgow’s Allotments

What contribution can allotments make to our City’s future?
One of GAF’s primary aims is promoting the value of allotments. As we have begun to encourage more people to visit allotments we’ve realised that there is a lack of appreciation of the changes in what plot-holding means to allotment association members and their local communities.
This workshop aims to:
                 •      clarify the purposes and needs that plot-holding
                        serves for our members and their local
                        communities.
                 •      look towards the future of food growing/urban
                        gardening and the preservation, expansion
                        and use of green space in the City.
                 •      devise a strategy for promoting allotments
                        in Glasgow.
If you would be interested in attending the workshop please let us know using the contact e-mail.
Open Farms and Gardens from September 14th – 19th
