Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Zoom this year. Last year we simply published our annual reports but we
didn’t hold a meeting. This year the Committee have decided to go ahead online as conditions don’t seem to warrant meeting together physically this winter.
GAF was started in 2001 to give a voice to allotment gardeners in Glasgow. It is run by plot-holders as an independent organisation, funded by Potato Day and donations from allotment associations and individual plot-holders. It provides the opportunity for plot-holders to meet, share information and discuss issues related to allotments. The Forum agreed its first Constitution in 2004, which was updated to its current form in 2013.
Our committee meets once a month on Zoom, on Thursdays from 7.30 – 9.0 pm. We would welcome new members, so
do get in touch if you think you would like to join us.
Every year we put on a calendar of talks and discussions. Next year, we would also like to get back to organising meetings in person and more visits and interaction between sites. If you have any suggestions for what we could be doing – particularly in relation to climate change and how allotmenteers could contribute to promoting improvements in Glasgow – please come along to the AGM, or send us your ideas if you can’t make the meeting.
The AGM is open to everyone who is a plotholder in Glasgow. It receives reports on GAF’s activities and finance and
elects officers and members of the committee. This year we will also hear from the 3 associations that won our
Allotment Development Awards.
