The Central Scotland Green Network has just announced its fund for projects to be implemented in 2016/17. The projects can start in April 2016 and should be completed by the end of February 2017.
One of the strands that will be funded is Community Growing: Formal or informal projects …. engaging local communities and encouraging the Good Food Nation ethos (that people in Scotland are able to buy, serve and eat food that is affordable, healthy and sustainable). They are looking for fairly big projects in this area – there is £100K available and minimum size of project is £10K, but a group looking to start up or regenerate an allotment site in the CSGN area may well be able to write a successful proposal.
To find out more about the grants on offer, to determine whether your project is in the eligible area and in general discover how to apply see their web site at http://www.centralscotlandgreennetwork.org/resources/funding/csgn-development-fund
