About GAF

The Glasgow Allotments Forum is an independent voluntary organisation that was set up to support plotholders in Glasgow. Our website lets you know what’s going on, how you can join in, and where and how you can contact local sites (Sites).  You’ll also find information for those of you who are serving on allotment committees.

If you are new to plotholding there is further information and some useful links in the section New Plotholders

The Forum’s aims are: 

  1. To share knowledge and information about topics of interest to Glasgow allotment holders.
  1. To support Glasgow allotment associations and their committee members in managing their associations effectively and developing their sites for the good of all their members and the environment.
  1. To promote the benefits and contribution that allotments can make to local communities within the city of Glasgow.

We hold meetings in central Glasgow every two months to which all plotholders are invited.  These meetings combine a discussion on a topic of interest to our members with a business meeting. They are listed in our calendar (see Events)  where events organised by local associations can also be advertised.

In addition the Forum organises two major events annually: Potato Day and a Celebration of Allotments (Events), supports various Awards, and bids for, and runs City-wide initiatives.

GAF is also a member of the Scottish Allotments and Gardens Society (SAGS)  so, since as a Glasgow plotholder you are a member of GAF, you are also automatically a member of SAGS as well. You will find articles and news about events that may be of interest to you on their website at  SAGS.
