People and projects across Scotland are building community through sowing, growing and sharing food in their local areas.
Grow brings together information and experience from growers in a range of
settings across Scotland. We highlight some critical components required
to support your growing journey, whatever the setting, and include
resources and inspiration from Scotland’s growing network.
Content beyond this page is always being developed so if there is something you’d like to see included or share your growing story, we’d love to hear from you.
