Nether Loirston Growers Association

Hoe Down 11-6-17.jpg

In April 2021, the group celebrates its tenth anniversary. The community site was made possible by a grant from the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund. It is an independent, self-funding group. The 32 plots are worked by Allotmenteers and local schools, who help and learn from each other and grow a range of fruit, herbs and vegetables. There is a polytunnel and the group harvests rainwater from the surrounding roofs. During the Pandemic the group has not been able to undertake normal community activities, for instance the local Gala or hold social events. The members look forward to resuming these activities in the near future.

In 2019, Nether Loirston Growers Association was awarded a Certificate of Distinction to further recognise the groups' achievements.
