Grow Kilbarchan’s aim was to facilitate information sharing between experienced and novice gardeners, encourage community growing projects and support food sustainability by holding plant and seed swap events.
Their launch event was a very successful plant and seed swap in 2013. They went on to plant fruit trees at various parts of the Kilbarchan, held orchard training and raised bed building workshops and set up a community growing space.
In 2017, Grow Kilbarchan merged with Kilbarchan Smile, who were able to set up a larger community garden as part of Stalled Spaces.
