Braehead Community Garden is the Big Lottery funded project situated on the green space between Broom Road and the railway. It is a great place to spend time watching the different aspects of the growing season in the company of your friends and neighbours. You can also grow your own tasty, fresh, locally produced fruit and vegetables in your own raised bed.
A BBCDT GARDEN ACCESS pass is £25 per year and gives independent access to the community garden and all events and classes. You can then hire a raised bed for £25 per year to grow fresh, delicious and local fruit and vegetables. If you hire a raised bed, you will also get a bed in one of our polytunnels, which will enable you to grow peppers, chillies, tomatoes and more.

EGGS – members can help look after our small brood of chickens and buy Braehead eggs.
