This event is being organised by members of the Scottish Botanical Art Collective (  – and more information and tickets can be found on our Eventbrite page.


Visit to Kinning Park Complex

We were lucky to have the opportunity to visit the team at Kinning Park Complex in Glasgow on 24 August,  in order to find out how they have developed to where they are today, the projects they are working on and their future plans.

The team were incredibly welcoming and we were really inspired by their story – their Waste Not Want project is just one example of the great work they are doing in their local community.

Lots of inspiration, ideas, good contacts and new friends for granton:hub!

This visit would not have been possible without the Scottish Community Alliance, who supported the trip through the Community Learning Exchange fund.
