Get Growing Scotland

Get Growing Scotland is brought to you by the Community Growing Forum Scotland, a group of grassroots projects and support organisations sharing information, inspiration, and expertise from communities and partners across Scotland. 

Let’s work together to ‘get growing’ so more people and communities benefit from growing and sharing fresh food, learning new ways to connect with nature,  and supporting people to enjoy the physical and mental well-being benefits of doing something creative and positive outdoors. 

 ‘’Get growing” and share your inspiration and experiences here: help us ‘get it’ – to better understand how we can start and keep growing and benefit ourselves, our communities and our planet. 

Green and nature spaces on our doorsteps offer opportunities for everyone. Working together we can improve and grow the number of sites so everyone who wants to can contribute and benefit from growing and greening in their local area.

If you have any ideas, inspiration or resources you would like to contribute to to Scotland’s growing in our community hub, get in touch.


We have a free advisory service for community organisations looking to start and continue their greenspaces for growing and nature-based activities. So if you are unsure where to start, need to find a particular resource or want to connect with a like-minded organisation, contact us. We are here and happy to help.
