Supporting and championing food growing in our communities
Get Growing Scotland supports people to grow food by providing inspiration, advice, connections and ongoing support. Wherever we grow, from a windowsill at home to land in our local area, growing food can be fun, and good for us, our communities and our planet. Let’s get growing!
For community groups
help@ is a free advisory service for community groups starting or developing a food growing project, with advice and ongoing support on a wide range of topics, local and national connections to partners and resources, and ideas from projects across Scotland. If you are unsure where to start or know what you are looking for, we are here to help.
Information and inspiration to grow food year-round, supporting people and community groups to develop skills, confidence and connections to get growing food anywhere and everywhere, whatever the weather!

It can be overwhelming to start and keep growing, so Grow6 keeps it simple with six crops that grow well in Scotland in a range of settings, information on each crop, and regular updates throughout the year for growing anywhere and everywhere across Scotland.
