Tayport Community Growing Space is a Climate Challenge Fund-financed PLANT group project to establish an inclusive community garden and training for Tayport residents to grow more food locally while reducing carbon emissions due to food miles and travel.
The garden will be a mix of allotments and shared plots and will act as a knowledge hub for developing and sharing skills through workshops and social events aimed at the whole Tayport community. Its development is supported by two part-time community growing co-ordinators.
The project is funded for a year, until April 2016, and is a culmination of several years of work by the PLANT group aimed at creating Tayport’s own community growing space. We hope that you will help us make it into a lasting legacy.
We welcome continuing contributions to the project from all Tayport residents. We need hands-on enthusiastic volunteers to help with running of the project and project participants in community and home growing.
