Harvest, Producing Food in Glasgow and Responding to the Consultation on Social Prescribing

With the harvest in full swing, and friends and neighbours already beginning to look dubious when you chap the door with yet more courgettes on offer, now’s a good time to think about what preserves and baking you might be able to contribute to our Celebration of Allotments at St.Margaret’s Episcopal Church on September 28th  

We’re looking to have a good range of baking in the café and a variety of produce and preserves on our stall that shows off what Glasgow allotments are capable of producing.

If you think you can help please get in touch.

 GAF’s SEPTEMBER MEETING

Our next meeting on Thursday September 5th (Garnethill Multicultural Centre, Rose St.  7 – 8 pm) will start with a talk by Abi Morden from Propagate (www.propagate.org.uk). All those who are interested in the topic are welcome.
