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.
The Climate Challenge Fund project has now finished. But South Seeds has opportunities for local residents to learn how to plant seeds. South Seeds top gardener, Robin Ashton, has been working with schools to plant up raised beds in playgrounds for a productive growing season.
Saturday 28th April 2-3pm
Come to Agnew Lane to learn how to plant seeds and seedlings into the ground. Hot drinks and great biscuits for all participants.
Agnew Lane gardening session 24th April, 7-8pm
Do come along and help with some gardening. We’ve still got potatoes to get in the ground, and if they’ve grown big enough some young peas and broad beans to plant out. No gardening experience required. Tea, Coffee and biscuits will be provided as usual and we’ll also be giving out some free seeds to any volunteers that would like some.
Wednesday evening, 4th April
Come and help South Seeds between 6.30pm and 8.00pm prepare Agnew Lane (just off Albert Road, Govanhill) for Spring sowing. We’ll be holding another FREE raffle with great prizes including EcoKettle. Look forward to seeing you. Hot drinks and biscuits provided!
What a busy month! We have been creating growing space across the Southisde of Glasgow in time for the growing season. Our CCF project finishes this month, however South Seeds will still be around. Give us a call if you would like to be part of our Spring Volunteer Group.
Help build raised beds
Come to Agnew Lane on Saturday 24th March between 11am and 3pm. Members of Govanhill Residents Group will be there too. We will be making raised beds and could do with extra help.
Saturday 25 February 2-4pm
Come and help South Seeds push wheelbarrows to finish the winter maintenance of the community garden at Agnew Lane. Hot drinks, snacks, shelter from the weather and a raffle with great prizes. See you there.
