This Report was sent to the Minister Roseanna Cunningham on February 14th and we hope that she will endorse the recommendations. The Working Group was set up to take forward that part of the Scottish Government’s Food and Drink Policy relating to growing your own food.
* Ensure that allotments and “grow your own” projects are strategically supported.
* Produce practical advice and best practice guidance that will appeal to public bodies, communities and individuals to help them develop local “grow your own” initiative
Three SAGS committee members are on the Working Group and trust that in the next year all the recommendations will be implemented. If you agree with these aims we would like you to disseminate the Report across your network and ask support for actions to further the Grow Your Own movement in Scotland. Please send any comments/suggestions on the Report to the SAGS members on the Working Group – Jenny Mollison (email@example.com), Judy Wilkinson (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Peter Wright (email@example.com).
