About Us

“Growing together” first took shape in 2019 and offered growing and cooking opportunities to the communities of Craigshill; with the development of community growing spaces, workshops and activities to compliment this. During the pandemic the importance of safe community outdoor spaces and the ability to grow food with and for our community became ever more important.

Now through the Scottish government “Investment in communities funding” we are delighted to be relaunching and expanding the remit of the “Growing together” project.

A unique and fully funded collaborative project delivered through WLYAP, SPARK and Almond housing the Project will stand alone and be led by what the people of Craigshill want from their environment and the places they live and work.
