Let's Cook, Grow and Sew Together

Introduction

Following on from the success of our “Cook, Grow and Sew” project, which started in 2013, we secured further funding earlier this year for 12 months to deliver a new project called “Let’s COOK, GROW and SEW Together”.  The current project builds on the learning of our previous project involving people from diverse communities in challenging climate change.  Let’s COOK, GROW and SEW Together engages with minority ethnic communities in Glasgow to increase individual and community understanding of climate change and reducing carbon emissions.  Having started in March this year, the project currently offers various behaviour changing tools such as developing a community garden space for growing, foraging sessions, low carbon food workshops, furniture refurbishing classes, eco driving training, sewing sessions, recycling and zero waste awareness sessions and Swap Shops at regular intervals throughout the year to encourage people to include the lower carbon route into their lifestyle.
