We are a community-led charity working to achieve lasting benefits for the Woodlands area of Glasgow.
• Promoting the health and wellbeing of local people
• Promoting learning and education within the community
• Encouraging artistic and cultural activity
• Protecting and developing Woodlands’ natural and built environment
Woodlands Community Garden is our main project. Since 2010 we have transformed a derelict urban gap site into a thriving community garden and “outdoor community centre”. The garden is used to promote outdoor education and as a centre for community arts activities.
Outdoor play activities have taken place in our community garden, at schools, nurseries and at nearby green spaces.
WOODLANDS WORKSPACE: the development of affordable workspace and artist studios at a gap site adjacent to our community garden
Woodlands Community Garden has remained open during the pandemic and we have seen the benefits the garden has brought to its visitors and raised bedders in reducing their stress. This led us to developing a new initiative, our Nature Recovery Project.
We offer opportunities for people to get outdoors, to help us improve local greenspaces and spend time observing nature. We are also offering free and confidential emotional support through one to one outdoor appointments with a mental health specialist.
We are now offering a "pay what you can afford" fortnightly seasonal fruit and veg box to local people.
