Grow your own

The increasing appetite for ‘grow your own’ was served up a cash boost this week by Environment Minister Stewart Stevenson.

Mr Stevenson announced a £600,000 package of support to encourage the development of more community growing and support the growth of Scotland’s grow your own sector.

£450,000 of the funding has been allocated to the Central Scotland Green Network Development Fund and will be distributed to community growing projects over three years. The remaining £177,500 has been allocated to organisations to support the growth of the community growing.

Mr. Stevenson also launched a new website this morning - www.growyourownscotland.info. Developed by the Federation of City Farms and Gardens, the site brings together all the organisations and grow your own resources that are available for people in Scotland.

Scottish Land & Estates is a member of the Grown Your Own Working Group.
