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.


Here's what we've been up to

April 2012

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!
