Argyll and Bute's Community Food Growing Strategy Consultation

This consultation is now closed and we thank you for your views. 

Your feedback helped contribute to the first Argyll and Bute Community Food Growing Strategy, required under the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015. 

The strategy was approved by Business Continuity Committee on 16 April 2020 and can be found here.

You can find a summary of the feedback here and our You Said, We Did summary here.

Consultation background

We invited residents of Argyll and Bute to give their views on our draft strategy which can be found here.

Argyll and Bute Council recognise that there are a number of good community food growing facilities already in place in the area and the aim of the strategy is to help inform us on how we can support and facilitate further activity. 

The Argyll and Bute Community Food Growing Strategy’s vision is to encourage and enable people in our community who wish to grow their own food, by providing: information on potential community food growing spaces, advice and guidance.
