CSGN Growing Food Together Fund


The CSGN Growing Food Together Fund was supported by the Scottish Government and managed by the Green Action Trust.

Projects could apply for part of the £100k fund that aimed to foster community engagement in growing and learning about food, and promote healthy eating and outdoor exercise.

The types of projects eligible included any activities that sought to promote and increase community growing within the CSGN area. These had to be able to be delivered within the guidelines from Scottish Government on Covid-19 restrictions.

Projects could include elements of growing projects that involve:

  • the installation of physical infrastructure
  • sourcing materials and equipment in preparation for the 2021 growing season
  • soil analysis testing
  • site feasibility studies or design work
  • non-site based projects such as the development and delivery of learning exchange programmes, skills and training and events that seek to increase awareness and interest in local community growing opportunities



All projects funded under the CSGN Growing Food Together Fund had to be located in the CSGN Activity Area. If you have any doubt as to whether your project is located in the CSGN eligible area you can check the CSGN boundary map.
