Our Services

Our community services provide free support to communities across Scotland, with particular focus on our local community in the Maryhill area, minority ethnic women across the West of Scotland and community groups and organisations across Scotland.

Local Community

With the help of local partnerships near our new location, we embarked on an exciting project to build a community garden that would be truly inclusive and representative of the people it serves.

The Shuna Street Community Garden is the result of a collaborative effort, with the community taking the lead in designing, planning, and bringing this space to life.

We now run regular blocks of weekly gardening sessions, where participants can:

  • Learn basic gardening skills

  • Learn how to grow their own food

  • Plant and grow their own vegetables and herbs in the garden

To find out more about our garden sessions and when they are held, please take a look at our activity calendar.
