Get Growing


People and projects across Scotland are building community and improving lives through growing, gardening, and other nature activities in their local area. With nature as our partner, we can regenerate our soils and grow greener, healthier, better connected, and biodiverse communities.

Growing sites, groups and projects across Scotland may differ, we also have much in common, much to celebrate in our collective effort, and plenty to share and learn. Land, volunteers, skills, plants and other resources come together on our sites providing places for growing, wellbeing, learning, for people of all ages and backgrounds.

Get Growing Scotland is a hub for communities starting and looking to sustain and develop their activities – to flourish. If you want help to get – and keep growing Reach out we are here and happy to help.
