Great Glen for Growing

" I would walk 100 miles......."

We believe in this that is why we are walking COAST to COAST through the Great Glen from Inverness to Fort William almost 100 miles!

Collaborative gardening and vegtable growing is a fabulous way to help older people keep active, eat healthily and reduces social isolation. Supported gardening sessions at The Active Green Living allotment project in Ashington provides gardening opportunities for new gardeners and for people to continue gardening that can no longer manage a whole garden on their own or have lost their gardens because they have moved into more accessible housing. Active Green Living has a positive impact on the mental wellbeing of participants. In particular, the project connects older people with others in the community, reducing isolation. Those involved in the project increase their levels of physical activity and this has an impact in their everyday lives.
“I was attracted to the project because of the companionship. I enjoy anything outdoors– it keeps me fit and mobile. I’ve always enjoyed gardening and this enables me to keep going”.
