Growing Gardening in West Dunbartonshire

Community Food Growing,
Allotment and Gardening

Inspiring people to make West Dunbartonshire the best Community Food growing and Garden location in Scotland

“More and more people in West Dunbartonshire want to grow their own fruit and vegetables”

There are up to 45 groups including nurseries, schools and community groups working together to spread the message and share the benefits of local grown food.

Since 2016, Growing West Dunbartonshire has held monthly meetings providing residents and groups with support and advice…and the opportunity for a catch up over a tea or coffee.

Our primary aim is to provide advice and encouragement to people wishing to establish a community garden or food growing activity small or large, or who wish to use our communities green space as sources of positive activities for all our residents.

We aim to increase community food growing activity through education, awareness raising and by working with our many partners across our local authority and on a national basis. We will achieve this by increasing the amount of community spaces uses to grow food and supporting others to grow food, in healthy, sustainable ways.
