Growing for seed at Lambhill Stables Community Garden
Want to learn to grow from seed-to-seed? Join our small, social garden team and help take care of crops grown for Glasgow Seed Library.
Working outdoors in all weathers at Lambhill Stables, we will be sowing, mulching, netting, composting, weeding, harvesting and monitoring the progress of our plants.
Over the course of the year, we will learn together how to successfully grow, nurture and nourish crops for organic seed production. Learn techniques to build up a healthy soil, how to control pests naturally and what kinds of care are needed by different plants.
At the end of the season, our harvested seeds will be dried, sorted and packed for Glasgow Seed Library, for the community to grow in 2024.
Field Days are perfect for anyone who is keen to get outdoors, be hands-on and learn-by-doing. No prior experience is necessary, just enthusiasm!
Please wear warm, waterproof layers, and if you have them, gardening gloves and outdoor boots.
In June we will be preparing our last bed for planting. We will also pot on our Black Futsu squash . We will also sow some green manures around our brassica seedlings to help retain moisture in the soil and encourage a diversity of soil microbes. We will apply some of our home made fertilisers to all our plants to ensure that they continue to flourish! And of course we will gather for a delicious lunch in the Lambhill Stables Cafe! Drop in any time between 11am and 3pm.
Lambhill Stables has a sloping community garden, with a mixture of hard and soft surfaces. Some Field Day tasks can be made accessible to people with a range of mobilities, including wheelchair users. Please email email@example.com in advance if you would like more information or to let us know of any access needs.
