Hillhead Housing Association 2000

Charity registered in Scotland SC029908

Our mission is to improve Hillhead for our tenants and the wider community, by providing better homes, helping create a better quality of life and involving local people in what we do

Current opportunity

Through the support of the Big Lottery Fund's Community Spaces Programme, Hillhead Housing Association reclaimed 2 disused plots of ground and developed them into community growing and recreational spaces within the neighbourhood of Hillhead, Kirkintilloch. The Project provides 11 raised beds, a large polytunnel and an orchard as well as seating areas and a range of high nectar trees and climbing plants to attract native life and improve biodiversity. The project is intended to benefit the whole community by improving the environment of Hillhead and by promoting increased community involvement and providing activities which will reduce isolation. They are looking for volunteers to grow their own fruit and vegetables and help maintain the garden.
