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.
Whole flat feels warm instead of one room
Robert, who lives just round the corner from South Seeds new office on Victoria Road, first engaged with South Seeds after seeing the new shop front and promotional A-board. He lives in a privately rented, sandstone Victorian tenement, which at the time of his initial engagement had single glazed windows and no central heating system.
We can cut the grass of a standard size tenement backcourt for £24. If you are looking for something cheaper, why not rent out manual lawn mower for £10 per day.
Recruiting for an energy officer
We are looking for someone who understands how energy works in the home and has a good manner with people, to join our team as a part time energy officer.
Guide to prepayment meters
