Castlemilk Gardening Association
Type of Organisation: Charity
Address: Kings Park Depot 355 Carmunock Road G44 5HL
The charity was set up in 1988 to "develop the community through the provision of recreational horticultural activities and advance the education of the public in Castlemilk and its wider environs." The organisation provides support and facilities for local people, some of whom may be older, frail or have disabilities, to participate in and extend their knowledge of horticulture. It provides social interaction for those who might otherwise be excluded or isolated and also works towards the relief of poverty by supporting individuals to grow their own food crops.
