In 2014, a small group of local people worked with Twechar Community Action and greenspace scotland to find new places to grow food in Twechar.

Together we:

  • found out what spaces in and around the village could be used for community growing
  • used the community growing poster, guidance notes and local knowledge to decide what kind of growing could happen in the spaces
  • shared the information with local people along the way (using Facebook and events)
  • created an action plan to make it happen
  • established two new community growing spaces
  • created the amazing Edible Twechar map with a graphic artist

Twechar now has a vision and an action plan for Edible Twechar which is being used to look for resources and funding to create more spaces to grow-your-own across the village. 

At the same time as developing the action plan and Edible Twechar map two spaces in the village presented themselves as “quick wins” i.e. where community growing could happen now.
