Community Growing

Renfrewshire Growing Grounds Forum

Renfrewshire Growing Grounds Forum supports local residents and groups to maintain and increase the quantity and quality of growing opportunities for people across Renfrewshire.

Managed jointly by Renfrewshire Council and Renfrewshire Health and Social Care Partnership, the forum represents more than 50 organisations including allotment and community garden associations, development trusts and voluntary sector bodies.

The Forum has created a valuable support and guidance network for members, including assistance in securing leases, funding advice and specialist growing guidance.
