A partnership of charitable groups are working to keep the residents of Torry growing plants during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Aberdeen-based charity CFine is working with One Seed Forward, Tullos Community Garden, and Granite City Good Food for the new Keep Growing Aberdeen initiative.
Anyone interested in growing herbs and vegetables in their homes, gardens or community growing spaces such as the Tullos Community Garden can get involved.
Rebecca Dunn, CFine community growing development worker, said: “The Keep Growing Aberdeen project encompasses everything that we stand for as an organisation: improving health, well-being, and the environment, as well as tackling poverty.
“CFine is delighted to participate in this great new initiative which will help people look after their mental and physical health and we look forward to seeing the good food that the local community will grow.”
Bob Donald, One Seed Forward chairman, added the group was delighted to support the project.
Participants are also being asked to safely share their surplus seedlings with their neighbours.
The initiative received £500 funding from Aberdeen City Council and each pack is being prepared at CFine’s premises before being distributed by the team’s electric cargo bike or car as part of their emergency food delivery route.
