Event Details

Hear from Social Farms and Gardens‘ Karen Davidson and Lou Evans all about the Community Growing Forum Scotland and how to get involved with growing in your area. Home gardens, community gardens and farms, allotments, verges, and windowsills are ways we grow locally, providing us with food, health and leisure activities, beautiful spaces, biodiversity, and opportunities to connect with and protect our natural world.

The Community Growing Forum Scotland aims for all communities to “GetGrowing“, with more able to participate and benefit from food and other growing activities in their local area. Formerly Grow Your Own Scotland and running since 2012, today its priority is to ‘grow back better’ – greener, healthier, fairer, from COVID-19; recovery and renewal through growing.

Interest and participation in gardening, growing food, and exploring nature in our communities is ‘growing’: we know this offers solutions to personal, local and global issues, and how we can all flourish.  Whatever your setting rural, urban, suburban, indoors or out, let’s work together and get growing!

#ScotClimateWeek

Scotland’s Climate Week from 26th September to 2nd October 2022, raises awareness of how people, businesses and organisations can adapt to a low carbon lifestyle. It celebrates and showcases climate action, with support across all our communities, an opportunity to respond to the climate crisis and encourage further action to help Scotland achieve Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.

This week, Eco-Congregation Scotland asks everyone to please get involved by having conversations on climate change with colleagues, family and friends – and within all our communities.

Please join us online this week to hear from key organisations able to support climate action through your local church, in your community and regional climate hubs across Scotland.

We can all work together to reduce our emissions and limit any further damage creating a fair and thriving Net Zero Nation. ‘Let’s Do Net Zero‘ and make that journey together, leaving no one behind.

Alongside the Season of Creation and Scotland’s Climate Week, we continue our September focus on the Climate Fringe Festival, promoting local climate action, sharing community events and connecting around climate change through the Climate Fringe website built by Stop Climate Chaos Scotland.
