Angus Food Growing Strategy – Why Not Grow Your Own?

Interest in gardening and growing your own food is increasing and we are all aware of the importance of eating healthy food that is fresh and environmentally sustainable.

The Scottish Government’s aspiration is for the country to become a Good Food Nation; a land of food and drink, not only in what we produce but also in what we buy, serve and eat. The Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015 aims to help empower communities across Scotland and for those wanting to “Grow Your Own”, it will improve access to land for food growing purposes. Every local authority must prepare a food-growing strategy.

The Angus Food Growing Strategy is in development and sets out the overall vision of what we want to achieve in Angus through food growing, tackling food poverty and supporting local growers.

To help shape the Angus strategy, please visit the Shaping Angus website and get involved by taking part in a short community survey or use the interactive map to plot your project location.


Please tell us about your ideas and help us identify areas of land that may be used as allotments or land for community growing initiatives.
