Community growing

Negotiating for land, planning your garden or farm, health and safety are just some of the issues involved in setting up a community-owned garden, allotment or farm. However, community growing and ‘grow your own’ has been gaining momentum over the last decade. Each local authority in Scotland must now provide a food growing strategy, so check your local authority website to find out what community or allotment space is available and what support is provided in your area.
