We hope you’re all well! We are touch as representatives of the new Hub G63 project ‘The Grow Garden’, a community food garden, which is being created on a site between Killearn and Balfron, and which will link to the existing community garden in Drymen.
The aim is to develop the sites to create valuable community food growing opportunities, to grow nutritious and delicious produce to sell locally and to provide fresh fruit and veg to those who need it.
We will be looking for community volunteers and hope to become a community hub for all generations. Any help spreading the word or raising donations would be incredibly gratefully received.
We have launched a crowdfunder website to raise funds for the project (which today reached its initial target and moved onto its stretch fundraising goal) and have also installed a collection box at Killearn Co Op, as we know not everyone is comfortable with Facebook or donating online.
Fuller details of our funding partners And plans are in this link:
I wondered if you have a community mailing list or Facebook page that could help spread the word about the project and help gain donations? We have posted on Killearn For All and all the equivalent pages for the surrounding villages.
Here is our website to see the other projects we are running, including NeighbourFood which Killearn Church Hall have kindly helped facilitate this past year
Any ideas on spreading the word would be gratefully received.
Thanks in advance
Catherine, Ruth, Richard and Jane
