We recognise the importance of allotments and food growing. We actively support community managed sites provided through the Locality Teams and Food Forum.

There are many fantastic community groups and projects in North Ayrshire. Some are running amazing food based initiatives. It’s through these partnerships that the food growing strategy (PDF, 286kb) is developing.
