Growing Your Own Food

We have helped create and support over 300 square metres of usable food growing spaces throughout CamGlen. A wide range of fruit and vegetables grow at the sites.


We also:

  • Deliver workshops to, and with, local residents and groups to encourage food growing.

  • Build skills and experience in growing fruit and vegetables.

  • Increase awareness around climate change and how to reduce our impact on the local environment. 

The spaces range from small planters and pots at local care homes, through large raised beds and orchard spaces at local nurseries and schools to a dedicated community garden space at Clydesmill Community Fire Station.

If you are a resident of Cambuslang or Rutherglen and have an interest in gardening and growing your own food, you are welcome!


Activities and workshops take place throughout the year but we are always looking for volunteers to help at the various growing sites, as work to maintain the sites never stops!
