Grow Harvest Cook Eat, run by Glencorse Association

Grant awarded: £54,142

Project Dates: 1 August 2014 - 31 March 2016

Glencorse Association ran the Grow Harvest Cook Eat project which worked with the parishioners of Glencorse in Midlothian to reduce carbon emissions. The project developed a community garden to increase production and consumption of local food and offered workshops in growing and how to reduce food waste. Food produced was made available for sale in the community centre cafe and shop, providing a source of local, fresh and healthy produce. The project also worked to promote lower carbon forms of travel including public transport and bike.
