Funding support for green-fingered communities

The Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) ‘Growing Food Together’ Fund is offering a cash boost to community growing projects across the whole of Scotland.

Funded by the Scottish Government, projects can apply for part of the £100,000 fund that aims to foster community engagement in growing and learning about food, as well as promoting healthy eating and outdoor exercise.

The Green Action Trust is managing the fund as part of its work to drive forward the delivery of the Central Scotland Green Network and welcomes applications from across Scotland.

Community growing projects are a key part of creating an environment that allows Scotland and its people to thrive. The Trust is particularly interested in applications that fit community growing into local responses to the present cost of living crisis and deliver aspirations to become a Good Food Nation.

The closing date for applications to the CSGN Growing Food Together Fund is 5pm on Friday 19 July 2024.

Find out more, including how to submit your application, on the Central Scotland Green Network website.
