Food growing and community gardening has something to benefit everyone and getting involved can help you by:
TCV Scotland run a number of programmes, such as Community Green Gyms, School Green Gyms and Space to Grow, to benefit and raise awareness and appreciation of the environment and local food production.

Our handy food growing booklet gives you a lot of information about what to grow, when and where. This booklet also shows you how to take positive action in your own space, on your allotment and with your community. Whatever space you have, from a large garden to a small window box, there is something for you to grow.
TCV would welcome discussing opportunities in your local area for health focussed community food growing projects. Please contact:
