We are working Clackmannanshire Council to develop a Local Allotments and Food Growing Strategy for Clackmannanshire. The #GrowClacks project will inform the development of the strategy.

The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act of 2015 requires each local authority to prepare a food-growing strategy for its area to identify land that may be used as allotment sites, identify other areas of land that could be used for community growing, and describe how the authority intends to increase provision for community growing, in particular in areas which experience socio-economic disadvantage. 

The #GrowClacks project has the following strands:

  • Stakeholder mapping
  • Mapping and land audit exercise
  • Facebook page here
  • Engagement events
  • Meetings/immediate actions
  • Survey here

We are also developing 4 case studies to showcase community growing already happening in Clackmannanshire - three of these are available here
