Centurion Way Growers is a growing group in the West End of Glasgow UK. Formed in 2014 the site comprises of 20 raised beds.
In 2010, Partick Housing Association undertook community consultations as part of the planning application for the development of Centurion Way on former railway land. The response highlighted a desire for more community growing space in the local area and this was included in the plans for the development.
The new homes were completed in 2013 and plots were assigned in 2014. Initially, the growers were supported by PHA with workshops and guidance to set up a community group. The site is owned by Glasgow City Council who have been supporting the group since 2017 to obtain a PTU for the space. An interim committee was formed in August 2018 and the group constitution completed in October 2020.
Centurion Way Growers now have a strong committee in place to lead and guide an enthusiastic group of plot holders. They regularly hold workshops and social events, and maintain their plots, growing a variety of fruit and vegetables.
