Everyone is invited to the Greenlink Allotment Harvest Fest to mark the end of the growing season on the allotments this Saturday.

Hosted by the Greenlink Allotment Group, the event is free to attend and will take place at Fife Drive in Forgewood from 1 to 3pm.

Funded by the Nineveh Trust, the Harvest Fest is a celebration of the end of the growing season and will offer a range of activities for the local community to enjoy, from a seed swap and children’s arts and crafts to a free healthy recipe guide available to all participants.

Also on offer at the event is the chance for people to purchase cheap, healthy, organically grown vegetables from the allotments.

Harry Crossan, chairman of the Greenlink Allotment Group, said: “This time of year is always really exciting and this will be our first ever Harvest Fest at the Greenlink Allotments.

“We’re very pleased with the produce we have grown and are looking forward to seeing people getting involved and into the harvest spirit with us.”

The Greenlink Allotment Group has been funded by North Lanarkshire Council, the ScotRail Foundation and TCV.

The Greenlink is a 7km cycle route from the Aquatech to Strathclyde Country Park via North Motherwell, Forgewood and Orbiston.
