Growing a Greener Glasgow

Welcome to South Seeds!

South Seeds is a community organisation based in the South Central area of Glasgow. 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 is 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.

Looking for southside film-makers

South Seeds would like to commission a film-maker to create two films, both less than 3 minutes each and ready to upload to YouTube by 28 March 2019. The films will link South Seeds’ work to the process of slowing down climate change by reducing the amount of carbon which is released to the atmosphere.
