CWIN Growing Course in Drumchapel!

1st May 2024

For the past few weeks, Essenside Church Hall has been the meeting ground for a group of passionate growers -- many with farming experience -- gathered to explore the basics of growing in Scotland. Under the guidance of our Community Activator Jenny MacGillivray, from GCFN, and our Development Worker Willow Rees, they've embarked on an enlightening journey into the green realm!

From sharing tales of different growing techniques to swapping insights on foods from around the world, our sessions have been very interesting! We have also delved into organic pest control, companion planting, and crop planning. 

We are getting ready to start the growing season, and it's good to have some knowledge and practical techniques to have in mind as we deal with the many challenges of growing food in a changeable climate!
