A little pot of money to help you learn from other allotments

SAGS members, and allotment groups who are considering joining SAGS,  can apply for money to fund a learning visit. The Scottish Community Alliance secured a sum of money from the Scottish Government for the use of its member organisations to fund a Learning Exchange and SAGS can access this. The idea behind the initiative is to help community organisations to share knowledge and skills through visiting each other. For example a new allotment group may wish to visit a successful established group and learn about the pros and cons of self management or an existing allotment group may wish to visit a voluntary organisation to learn about attracting volunteers…..The list is endless. If you feel your allotment groups would benefit and learn from a visit to another community group, allotment or organisation please get in touch. Similarly if you think you have useful experiences to impart to another allotment group and are willing to host a visit please get in touch. The money available would pay for travel, a little bit of subsistence and a host fee may also be available.  SAGS is keen for allotments out there to apply. You know what they say use it or lose it.
Send your contact details via the Secretary’s e-mail: secretary@sags.org.uk and Alison Swanson the committee member dealing with it will contact you.
