Community food growing and allotments

Food growing strategy

Over recent years the popularity of 'growing our own food' has increased.

Many people are attracted by the health benefits associated with growing your own fruit and vegetables and potential reductions in food bills from locally grown produce. It also has a positive impact on their carbon footprint by reducing the distance their food has to travel.

In response to the requirements of Section 9 of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015, we are currently preparing a Food Growing Strategy which will help to raise awareness of local food growing opportunities and give communities the chance to grow their own.
