Projects in central Scotland that bring communities together to enjoy the benefits of growing fruit and vegetables could be given a cash boost following the launch of the Central Scotland Green Network’s (CSGN) Growing Food Together Fund.

Supported by the Scottish Government, projects can apply for part of the £100k fund that aims to foster community engagement in growing and learning about food, and promote healthy eating and outdoor exercise.

Rural Affairs Minister Mairi Gougeon said:

“Now more than ever we are all increasingly aware of the importance of having access to growing and greenspaces as well as the physical and mental benefits of being outside and the need to recover from COVID-19 in a way that is inclusive and sustainable"

The closing date for applications to the CSGN Growing Food Together Fund is 5pm on Friday 24 July 2020
