Welcome to South Seeds!
South Seeds is a community organisation based in Glasgow at Govanhill. 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 are 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.
Supporting migrants to understand our energy system
More than 20 migrants a week drop in to the South Seeds office for support to tackle a wide range of issues with their domestic gas and electricity supply – from no heating, to tampered meters or the debts of former residents.
Tell us what you think about waste management and walking and cycling
South Seeds wants your views on how two local issues can be improved: waste management and walking and cycling. Come along to one of the sessions at our NEW office to take part. Refreshments provided and the first 50 people to come along get a free electricity monitor!

In the heart of Govanhill there is the most beautiful garden in a lane behind Allison Street. We have written up the story of the garden, so you can find out more about it.
