Each month we celebrate a person or organisation that’s making a big difference in the world but without necessarily making a big noise about it. Over the last few months we have gone international, finding cardboard beds in Japan, edible spoons in India and bamboo bikes in Ghana, all making a contribution to improving the lot of humanity in general.
This month we move closer to home and highlight South Seeds, an organisation that is making a difference in Glasgow. You can hear what the smallVOICE team think from around 31’24 minutes into our June podcast.
Oh, and ….. STOP PRESS!! We will be speaking to Keryn Banks, the Vice Chair of South Seeds, in a couple of weeks’ time, and we’ll put the interview out as a podcast extra on this website.
South Seeds is a community organisation based in Govanhill on the South side of the city, a diverse area where many people live in flats, and the spaces round about are communal areas. Part of what South Seeds sets out to do is to work with residents and organisations within the local community to help improve the look and feel of the place. But they are also involved in increasing energy awareness and helping people to learn about growing food and reducing the waste we all produce. South Seeds has won a plethora of awards and they are shortlisted in the Scottish Charity Awards 2016.
