Broughton Primary School visit

We had a great visit from Broughton Primary School children as part of our joint community Growing and Cooking project growing colourful crops in school playgrounds such as peas, sweetcorn and sunflowers.

Thank you so much for coming to visit us to learn what we do as well as for bringing some amazing basil with you! We look forward to growing plenty of tasty and colourful things over the coming months!

Champions for Change

In partnership with the Mental Health Foundation of Scotland

We are incredibly proud of this video that our Champions for Change group did, in partnership with the Mental Health Foundation Sawti project, which raises awareness of mental health and wellbeing of refugees and asylum seekers through arts and mentoring schemes.

As part of this project a book of stories and poems was also produced, which we are excited to share in due course. 
We would like to thank the always wonderful Amal Azzudin for all her commitment and support throughout the whole project!
