The Grow Garden

The Grow Garden

The Grow Garden will be a community food garden for everyone in G63 and beyond.

The Grow Garden is, at its heart, a place to grow fruit and vegetables in a way that regenerates the land and helps fight climate change, but the potential is for it to become more than that.


We want it to become the centre of a growing community, a place of experiences, education and working with nature at the heart of the G63 area.

The Community Garden

We all run a lovely community garden in Drymen - often the produce is given away for free at the Village Hub.

Connect with nature

We run foraging workshops to empower the community to find food all around them and connect with nature.

We are surrounded by amazing wild foods. Get out, connect with nature and learn to identify wild foods through the seasons at one of our foraging events.

We also co-organise Scotland’s only Wild Food Festival.

About us

About us

We didn’t feel like we had a lot of easy sustainable food options, so we got together as a community to create some!


We have 10 years to reduce the effects of climate change. Of all the human systems in the world, the food system has the largest environmental impact. Luckily, it’s also the one that we can all change by the positive choices we make every day, so we figure - it’s a good place to start!

Why is gardening good for you?

Anyone who gardens regularly will tell you how good it is for their wellbeing.

Being outside, nurturing living things, being in tune with the seasons.  I think that we can all understand how that works.  

But is there any scientific proof?

Well it turns out that there is...

Why should we buy local fruit and vegetables?

In the U.K. 4 supermarket chains control 80% of retail sales.

This has a big effect on all kinds of things - from the varieties of fruit and vegetables grown (with uniformity and transportability being valued over taste and nutrients) to the kinds of excess packaging that have become normal.
