WHO ARE WE
The community-led Maxwell Centre and Garden has been at the heart of the Coldside area for over 20 years. We have an outstanding reputation nationally for delivering a holistic project for wellbeing through support services, youth work and our community garden and outreach.
We are determined to make our communities stronger, more resilient and adaptable to change but also build the capacity to change our local environment for the better, have important conversations about climate and social change and demonstrate how this can be achieved at the neighbourhood level across Dundee.
We will make food growing more accessible to everyone in Dundee to learn and experience environmental action first hand in people’s own neighbourhood in three ways:
1. A NEW DUNDEE FOOD GROWING MAP and EVENT CALENDAR
2. REVAMPED FOOD GROWING TOOL AND SEED LIBRARY
We aim to save people money and reduce waste and carbon emissions through these activities and increase the food growing spaces and their productivity across our city.
3. YOUTH-LED FRIDAYS FOR FUTURE EVENTS
LONG TERM VISION
We are committed to sustaining this project beyond this funding opportunity.
This project is a unique opportunity to deliver and promote, through experience and example at community gardens, many of the objectives laid out in Dundee’s Climate Action Plan and the 20-minute Neighbourhood concept for sustainability.
