Food & Climate Action in Glasgow

Over the next two years, the Food & Climate Action project will be working across the city to grow community-led activity to face the challenges that climate change will bring for us all and our food system. We are a team based across six partnered organisations including: Glasgow Community Food Network, Glasgow Eco Trust, Urban Roots, St Paul’s Youth Forum, The Space, and Central & West Integration Network. We’ll be working to support increasing urban agriculture across the city and providing training and support on food and climate issues. Come join us at one of our events or workshops or get in touch at [email protected]
