Growing a Greener Glasgow

Welcome to South Seeds!

South Seeds is a community organisation based in Glasgow at Govanhill. We aim to work in partnership with residents and organisations within the local community to help improve the look and feel of the area. Under the climate challenge fund South Seeds are further developing the project to increase energy awareness and helping people learn more about growing food and reducing the amount of waste that we produce.

You can find out more about what we’re doing by visiting the projects section.


Here's what we've been up to

Celebrating the croft harvest

Join us to celebrate the harvest at the croft on the afternoon of Saturday 17 September.

How does the Warm Home Discount work?

The Warm Home Discount is a payment of £140 paid by participating energy providers into the electricity account of eligible customers to help with higher winter bills. Each energy provider opens their fund at different times and eligibility can vary too.

New fitness sessions at the Croft

Start a new highly enjoyable exercise class outside at our beautiful community garden – the Croft. Spending time at the Croft on Queen’s Park recreation ground, surrounded by the abundant raised beds full of fruit and vegetables, gives most people a good feeling about life. Doing 30 minutes of fitness there, is a guaranteed buzz.

Learn how to garden at Queen’s Drive Lane

Every Tuesday evening at 6.30pm, local people gather at a community garden about 50 meters along Queen’s Drive Lane from where it crosses with Langside Road. It’s not just the tea, coffee and quality biscuits they come for, it’s the opportunity to get gardening.
