Grow in Glenburn
Grow in Glenburn is a community garden in south Paisley, set in Gleniffer Braes Country Park. The group maintains the area which was formerly the kitchen garden of a country manor house, and is mindful of this heritage as it develops a growing area. Over the last eight years, the group has reclaimed the garden, clearing bushes and trees, re-establishing paths, creating 5x5m plots and building raised beds and polytunnels. Working with Barnardo’s to provide work skills for young people, the group also has a portacabin to provide shelter and a gathering space. This year, solar powered lighting and a composting toilet will improve the facilities further. The group looks forward to an exciting growing season in 2017.
