Tool library for the southside

South Seeds is starting a tool library for the people of the southside – and we need your help! Is your shed or cupboard bulging with tools that you just don’t use anymore?

Looking for sessional gardeners to join our team

We are looking for confident gardeners, who also have experience of working with people, to join our pool of paid sessional gardeners. We need people who can work between 3 and 8 hours of work per week, over the summer.

Want to adopt-a-bed at the Croft?

Toasty tenements with the South Seeds handymen!

You will have noticed that the nights are getting darker, the weather dreicher and there is a definite chill in the air. This is a good time of the year to make sure you and your home are in tip top condition and get ready for winter.

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.

Development of a community asset on Glasgow’s southside

We asked local residents what they wanted from a community asset and we looked about at all the possible vacant units and land which could be converted in to a community asset. Our findings are in the report.

How we work in residents’ homes

At South Seeds we have conducted hundreds of home energy audits to support residents to reduce their energy bills and stay warm in their homes. We regard it as a privilege to be let in to residents’ homes and we take that responsibility seriously. This is how our staff arrange and carry out home visits.

Grass cutting

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.
