Growing at Growchapel with CWIN
Central and West Integration Network (CWIN) were a recipient of our Food and Climate Action fund. Read on to find out more about them and what they've been doing with their £1.5k.
Central and West Integration Network is a Scottish charity based in the centre and west end of Glasgow that supports asylum seekers, refugees, migrant workers and black and minority ethnic people to access resources that improve their standard of living. We are a vibrant community organisation that promotes food security, participation and integration. We are always looking for people to get involved.
About their Food and Climate Action funded project
With their funding, CWIN have employed a sessional worker, Willow, for their allotment at Growchapel Community Allotment Gardens in Drumchapel. Willow has been working hard since the beginning of the season to create a space for growing healthy fresh produce using no-dig methods. She has a team of volunteers from CWIN helping her and this month they are finally reaping the rewards! The produce has been going out to families through the @garnethillmcc Food Hub and also used for CWIN's weekly community meal.
Awarded in June, 10 groups across Glasgow each received £1500 to put towards existing or new projects related to food and climate in their communities. This was made possible thanks to funding from The National Lottery Community Fund.
