Healthy n Happy CDT
Working with the community to encourage food growing and skill sharing
Want to start growing your own veg and help save the bees?
We're running a programme and competition to get you growing at home this summer.
We have a limited set of growing kits (kindly provided by Grow 73) to get people started. We want people to submit photos each week, so we can see see your progress over the summer months. However, if you have other seeds that you want to grow, you can still join in. There are great weekly prizes to be won, so get sowing and growing. Find out more here!
Healthy n Happy CDT is funded through the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund and aims to increase production and consumption of local food by creating and connecting growing spaces across Cambuslang and Rutherglen. The project also aims to change behaviours and awareness of local residents in terms of food, healthy eating and climate change through a food education programme, including food growing workshops at specific growing sites, pop-up educational sessions for school and community groups, and train the trainer workshops for local residents and workers involved in community garden initiatives.
The project originally ran from 2018 to 2020, but a successful CCF funding bid has extended the project until 2022.
Further support is available to help anyone in the community to replace car travel with cycling or walking and learn more about climate change and lower carbon options. Details on this can be found on the Healthy n Happy or BikeTown websites.
