Want to adopt-a-bed at the Croft?

Calling all aspiring veg growers: it’s that time of year again when we launch our adopt-a-raised-bed scheme at the Croft – a beautiful community garden next to Queen’s Park recreation ground.

Shortlisted for the Nature of Scotland Award

South Seeds is delighted to be nominated for the Nature of Scotland award for building the Croft, a beautiful community garden in the heart of the city.

Come along to celebrate this year’s harvest

Join us for a BBQ on the afternoon of Sunday 24 September at the Croft.

New southside composting facilities

Ever wondered how your potato peelings could help change the world? Wonder no more! You can help create compost by taking them, as well as your other vegetable peelings, tea bags, coffee grounds and even cardboard egg boxes, to South Seeds’ brand new composting hub at Queen’s Drive Lane community garden.

Come to our gardens and learn how to grow

Spring has finally sprung and it’s the perfect time to get outside and get growing! South Seeds is running two gardening sessions each week this growing season. The sessions take place in the two beautiful community gardens we have built, both of which are not too far from Victoria Road.

Composting Times is out

Paper copies of this newspaper, about composting in the Southside, are available in cafes and community outlets across Govanhill, Strathbungo and Pollokshields East during spring 2017.

Want space to grow veg this year?

Meet people like you who want to grow their own food (or learn how) and keep active outdoors in our little urban oasis!

Allison Street community garden

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.
