Seedling Sharing Project

Keep Growing Aberdeen is a seedling sharing project formed by a new partnership between CFINE, One Seed Forward, Tullos Community Garden, and Granite City Good Food. If you live in Aberdeen, you can sign up to receive home growing packs, including vegetable and herb seeds, plant pots, compost, and detailed instructions on how to get growing.

The packs are suited to your needs, just let us know whether you will be growing on your windowsill or have the facilities to plant in your garden or in a community garden, so we can adjust your package accordingly.

The packs are prepared at the CFINE premises and we will deliver those by electric cargo bikes or car, following strict health and safety procedures.

If you are interested, don’t hesitate to contact Rebecca Dunn on 01224596156 or at [email protected] for more information or to sign up.

The aim of the project

We know that the coronavirus outbreak is causing some insecurity around food and most people are experiencing cabin fever due to the confinement at home.

Contact with nature is proven to improve mental health, which makes food growing a great remedy for the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sign up today to this great opportunity and release the tension while growing some delicious food!

What we are asking in return

  • To share your surplus seedling with your neighbours
  • Some photos of your progress and feedback on how you are getting on

That’s it!

If you are interested, don’t hesitate to contact Rebecca Dunn on 01224596156 or at [email protected] for more information or to sign up.
