We were thrilled to have Glasgow’s Lord Provost, Councillor Philip Braat, join us at the GAU allotment recently for a feast of home-grown produce and Afghan flavours.

Our allotment is a communal space we can share to spend time outdoors and exercise and relax by gardening. We’re growing a lot of produce there and are delighted to be able to enjoy the fruits of our labour – literally. Our strawberries and tomatoes are delicious and so is everything else!

Of course, food always tastes better with friends. We were honoured to have Councillor Braat join us for a tour of our space.

He helped pick some berries and sat with us to share some traditional dishes. The weather was so good we even managed to get the barbecue out to prepare meat in the open air.

We’d like to thank the councillor for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit us. We look forward to having many more friendly events in the GAU allotment – maybe you’ll join us too.
