Simple answer? Grow what you can your own
The biggest question we get asked is when we’ll start selling plastic free food, and granted it’s been a while since we started but things are now moving to get our zero waste shop set up in the west end of Glasgow. However, we’re here with answers on how you can reduce a little more on your own at home, no matter what type of home you have.
We’re connecting with more and more local community groups and enterprises, mainly in the west end of Glasgow, to ensure a smooth journey while we get our shop ready. We want to partner with and collaborate even more-so in future to ensure that you can make the most out of living in Glasgow.
How can we help you just now though? By supporting you to become even more self sufficient and living more sustainably, while also saving you a lot of money in the process and the huge winner – no unnecessary packaging and waste either!
You may have read our previous blog here about growing your own, with some excellent advice from fellow home food growers but what if you need to ask questions like many of our followers already have? Well, we’ve got two in person workshops you can attend in March!
In collaboration with the Woodlands Workspace, whom we adore for the work they’re doing and have done, we decided to make it even friendlier by getting them on board to provide workshops on what you can grow indoors at home.
Living in a flat as many of us do in Glasgow, it’s difficult and fustrating when people say off the cuff ‘oh, just grow it yourself’, sometimes it’s not as simple as that. However, no need for panicking that you’re still on the waiting list for an allotment either or you just don’t have the time to go to your local community garden. Come along and learn about what is simple, easy to grow and when to grow it from the experts in this field!
We’ve got two workshops, to suit different working hours and availability.
Proceeds from ticket sales are going towards the community garden to help support the work they do, as well as replenish materials and seeds used at the workshops.
