GroW6

Wherever we grow food, from a windowsill at home to land in our local community, it can be fun, and good for nature, our climate and us. If you are new to growing or want to grow more ‘fruitfully’, and to grow something fresh and nutritious to eat year-round, Grow6 can help.

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. You can develop skills and knowledge and build your food-growing confidence with inspiration to keep growing.

 You can follow Grow6 and learn and practice at home or perhaps try learning through volunteering at your nearest community growing space. Look at these maps, to see if you have a growing space near you.

If you don’t find a group on the map near you or want to start a group in your local area get in touch we are here and happy to help.

What do you want to grow?

Grow6 is supported through the Tesco Communities fund.

Every growing space and every season is different, and changes how we grow food. Grow6 is a place for new, and experienced growers, to start to learn, practice and share tips and tricks for growing success in our changeable climate.  Follow our socials for regular updates.
