How to Start Community Growing-Thurso Grows

Starting Community Growing in the Highlands - The Thurso Grows Way

4pm, Tues, 9th Feb 2021

Thurso Grows has developed into a highly successful community growing venture in a very short space of time. How did they do it? 

Please do join this free event to learn how to develop more community growing ventures in the Highlands. 


Joan is the Thurso Community Development Trust Development Manager and a member of the TCDT Thurso Grow’s project. She will be presenting how they took Thurso Grows from a dormant and unloved growing space to a flourishing Community Garden and will share with us the journey with the community on the small steps they can take to mitigate against climate change.

Joan will also discuss the funding opportunities the Trust have allowed and the overall ambition of the Trust in terms of climate action being embedded in the work they do and the initial development of the project.

We'll also be joined by a member of the Thurso Grows project who will discuss their journey over the past two years which has also seen them take over the Thurso civic Town Square and how they have been able to continue working through Covid-19 and engaged with the community. 

And we'll also learn about their plans for the future including the upscaling of the project though asset transfer of the Thurso Greenhouses Complex from Highland Council. Join us and be inspired to start your own community growing venture.
