Welcome to My Learn and Grow

We are residents and neighbours who wish to establish Learn and Grow as a consistent Outdoor learning and wellbeing activity in every community, school and nursery throughout West Dunbartonshire, every day.

The Learn and Grow project is a gateway to a treasure throve of information about our glacial shaped landscapes, wildlife corridors, volcanic structures, wonderful waterways and amazing woodlands.

Delivered by a unique partnership of residents, family, community volunteers, Local authority and National groups. A consistent part of how we deliver community led outdoor learning and activities in West Dunbartonshire.

So far, over 2500 children and adults have participated in a Learn and Grow activity ensuring that a generation of children grow up with the confidence to shape their communities, their health, and their future.

So, let’s get busy visiting our natural heritage resources. Lots of Woodlands, Community gardens and River walks to explore.

Tell us about your visits and activities in our community page.

Testimonials

"Fab way to get involved and join in your child’s learning in the nursery environment, it also feels good to contribute to the nursery grounds too. And the kids get to see progress of their work as the flowers and veg grow."

Louise, amazing parent helper!

Our long term vision to establish Learn and Grow as a consistent and dynamic Outdoor learning activity in every community, school and nursery in West Dunbartonshire, every day.
