Urban Roots is a community led organisation working across the Southside of Glasgow. They are committed to working with local people on projects that improve the environment and health of the area through a range of activities including community gardening, conservation and biodiversity, courses, workshops and schools projects. Work aims are to inspire people and communities to connect with nature, and take practical action that makes a positive difference to their own lives, their communities and the planet.
Long term aims are to build a new community resource using sustainable eco-build methods and renewable technologies where people can share skills and knowledge and to use an educational resource. Urban Roots are part of a growing movement developing urban agriculture across Glasgow and local food growing based on permaculture methods, in partnership with other similar organisations.
