News and Events

At South Seeds we have a lot going on – from exciting events to engage the community, new developments within our organisation and good old fashioned hard work to get the gardens growing well. Keep up to date by visiting this page for our latest news, events and opportunities.

New southside composting facilities

Ever wondered how your potato peelings could help change the world? Wonder no more! You can help create compost by taking them, as well as your other vegetable peelings, tea bags, coffee grounds and even cardboard egg boxes, to South Seeds’ brand new composting hub at Queen’s Drive Lane community garden.

Come to our gardens and learn how to grow

Spring has finally sprung and it’s the perfect time to get outside and get growing! South Seeds is running two gardening sessions each week this growing season. The sessions take place in the two beautiful community gardens we have built, both of which are not too far from Victoria Road.

It was a busy winter

We have been very busy this winter supporting the residents of Govanhill, Crosshill, Queen’s Park, Strathbungo and Pollokshields East to sort out their energy issues…

Does your bike take up too much space in your flat?

Does your bike take up too much space in your flat but you can’t store it in your tenement close? Are you stumbling over it in your hallway or living with it in your living room because you don’t have anywhere else to store it?

Is there still life in your old gadgets?

We are not looking for fridges or washing machines but those small electrical items which are at the back of cupboards or stuck in draws.

Campfire singalong

Join us at the Croft on Sunday 5 March for a singalong around a campfire.

How we support residents to save energy in their homes

We have conducted more than 600 home energy audits on the southside of Glasgow to support residents save energy. Each home is different and the way residents use energy in their homes varies. We have collected a few case studies together to show the range of energy-related issues we have tackled.
