Grow Wild's Scotland flagship - Water Works, Barrhead
Meet the Grow Wild Scotland flagship
Barrhead Water Works, near Glasgow won the public vote to become Grow Wild’s Scotland flagship site in November 2013
In doing so, it’s become a beacon for what we’re all about: people coming together to make a difference in their community using UK native wild flowers.
Its makeover has been led by East Renfrewshire Council, alongside Barrhead High School with enthusiastic help from Young Enterprise Scotland, the Coach House Trust and Barrhead Men’s Shed.
The runners-up were Belville Community Garden in Greenock with a plan for a growing project on the site of former high rise flats in Greenock, and Froggy Pond in Livingston - where the team are transforming a much-loved pond and park with a wetland area and wild flower structure; both received £4,000 each to progress their projects.
Check out these interesting features on The Community Channel and the Riverside Show.
