AGM 2021 // 2 December 7 – 8:30pm

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.

Event summary: how to preserve your harvest 🥫

We  had an interesting discussion on October 7th 2021 about preserving our produce, which covered a range of topics from seed-saving to sauerkraut.

We’ve written up a summary on the various techniques people have been using, with references to other sources of information and advice in our record of  the session.

COP26 Events

Glasgow Community Food Network

Our friends over at the Glasgow Community Food Network (GCFN) are organising around COP26, and would like to invite you to join them for a variety of interesting events led by their Food & Climate Action project team – some for you to listen to, others to learn from and others to support you to take action. There is also a consultation workshop where they want to hear YOUR views on local food that is accessible for everyone. 

All are on Eventbrite – please do go along and encourage others to join in. GFCN will also be promoting these in the coming weeks on social media so look out there and give them a follow, like or retweet.

The People’s Summit for Climate Justice

The COP26 Coalition is a UK-based civil society coalition of groups and individuals mobilising around climate justice during COP26. Coalition members include environment and development NGOs, trade unions, grassroots community campaigns, faith groups, youth groups, migrant and racial justice networks – to name a few.

The People’s Summit is their answer to the official talks between heads of state attending COP26. Between the 7th and the 10th of November, they’ll be bringing together the climate justice movement to discuss, learn and strategise for system change. Join in online from anywhere in the world, or in-person in Glasgow.

Climate Fringe

Organised by Stop Climate Chaos Scotland, the Climate Fringe has been built to share events, join together all the activities, and connect around Climate Change and COP26.

Recipes for Resilience

With a mix of online events and physical sessions on Houldsworth Street in the West End (G3), Nourish are running a 12-day event dedicated to food and climate during COP26.

The GAF events calendar

We hold monthly GAF events ourselves. These include presentations from knowledgeable people about topics related to growing, as well as open forum discussions where you can hear from, and share ideas with, fellow growers in Glasgow.
