An award-winning homebuilder has struck up a partnership with a local gardening company to give buyers in the West of Scotland the chance to grow their own fresh produce from the comfort of their homes.

CALA Homes (West) has joined forces with East Renfrewshire based ‘Goody Foody Gardens’ to give clients the opportunity to have their very own raised bed vegetable patch added to their garden as part of their new home purchase.

Buyers who select the option will be given everything they need to get growing. This includes a raised bed which will be installed by an experienced Goody Foody Gardener, who will show homebuyers how to get the best from their garden.

Liana Canavan, sales and marketing director at CALA Homes (West), said:“We’re delighted to partner up with Goody Foody Gardens to offer buyers a more sustainable way of getting their hands-on family favourites that feature on weekly food shopping lists once they’ve moved in.

Laura Molloy, Founder at Goody Foody Gardens, said: “Growing your own is becoming increasingly popular as people become more conscious of the provenance of their food as well as their impact on the environment when it comes to food waste and single use plastic packaging.

The Goody Foody Gardens raised bed vegetable patch for up to 11 veg and three herbs costs £348 and includes full installation and an annual maintenance plan by a knowledgeable gardener with seasonal veg top-ups. Payments can be made as a one-off or spread across 12 months for £29.
