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 October we will make a frost protective structure for our overwintering pak choi. We will lift our cabbages to overwinter them in a cool (but not too cool!) place indoors over winter for replanting next spring. We will make leaf mulch to feed the soil and protect it from the rain and cold. And of course we will harvest more seeds! We will gather for a delicious lunch in the Lambhill Stables Cafe at around 1pm. 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 in advance if you would like more information or to let us know of any access needs.
