Allotments and Food Growing Strategy

We are developing a food growing strategy for the Highlands and identifying land that may be used as allotment sites or by communities for the cultivation of vegetables, fruit, herbs or flowers.  We recognise that increasing the availability of food growing spaces as well as green spaces has significant benefit to the surrounding environment.

Our Climate Change team will shortly begin work on a draft food growing strategy and revision of our allotment policy, and will likely publish this by Winter 2019.

We will be consulting with communities about developing the strategy through 2018, and information about events will be published here as well as on our Twitter feed @Carbon_CLEVER

Register your interest in an allotment here, If an allotment association starts in your area (using our land) we will pass your details on to that group.

If you have an idea for a local food growing or allotment project, please get in touch with us we may be able to help fund some aspects of your project.
