Through shared gardening activities, environmental improvements and events, Grow 73 aims to improve the health and well-being of our community and make Rutherglen the place to be. Their group of volunteers meet every Monday morning from 10am until 11.30am/12pm at their base in Overtoun Park, the shipping container in the area of the park near to the BMX track and health centre.
The sessions are free and open to anyone.
As a volunteer with Grow 73 you will be part of a friendly, hardworking team, discovering new skills and interests and making a positive contribution to your community. This is an opportunity to have fun, meet new people and gain experience in a hands-on environment where you will see your efforts make a real difference. Please pop along and join in – no gardening experience or equipment required (just bring gardening gloves!) Grow 73 are currently in negotiations with SLC to lease 3 disused bowling greens in Overtoun Park to develop a fantastic community garden so this is a great time to join up.
Due to Covid 19 we are not serving hot drinks so volunteers are encouraged to bring their own if they wish, as well as their own gloves if possible. Grow 73 is disinfecting the tools after use and will be abiding by social distancing rules.
Please bring comfortable , weather proof clothes as we generally dont have a place to shelter.
