Glasgow Invitation

We are contacting you as an individual or an organisation with an interest in food growing to invite you to a workshop to identify and develop local food growing opportunities.

Greenspace Scotland is working with Glasgow City Council to support the development of a Food Growing Strategy for the city. Over the next two years, all Scottish Local Authorities will be required to develop a Local Food Growing Strategy as part of the implementation of Community Empowerment Act (2015).

Greenspace Scotland has been commissioned by Scottish Government to work with a number of councils across Scotland to begin the process of community engagement in the development of these strategies.

The approach being taken in Glasgow is to build a strategy based on CIty-wide commitments but made up of local action plans which capture the priorities for each area of the city. This draws on feedback from previous consultations, mapping work linked to the Open Space Strategy and current Greenspace Management Programmes.

We will be working in two areas within the City – one in the West and one in the South to identify local priorities and partners, map food growing which is happening on the ground and develop detailed proposals for community growing projects which can be taken forward quickly to ensure that the strategy begins to deliver change as soon as possible.

The initial workshop will be held in the South area on 23 November 2017 from 3.30pm to 6.30pm at the Studio, Tramway Theatre, 25 Albert Drive, G41 2PE.

The approach will then be rolled out to the rest of Glasgow.
