Members of CSSC benefit from a great range of discounted and free days out and shopping vouchers.
CSSC member and volunteer Robert Gillies and a group of like-minded friends wanted to give something back to their community and improve the town they lived in. They thought it would be great to have fruit trees all over the town where the kids could get free fruit and that was how the East Kilbride Development Trust began.
The Trust also offers courses in composting, bee-keeping and chicken-rearing and encourages cooking and healthy eating amongst various other community projects.
The focus of the group is to facilitate an increasing interest to improve the environmental sustainability of community life and help people learn about and grow their own food.
We are donating £1,000 to the Trust to help towards their annual running costs and in exchange, the group has agreed to send seeds to any members looking to start their grow-your-own adventure.
Received my seeds recently so looking forward to planting them.
I ordered the seeds and assigned my grandchildren to grow their 'own' dwarf beans. Amazing success... although a lot of the beans never make it to the plate, as the kids eat them raw. The harvest has been amazing and ongoing :) Thanks
