Mansewood Allotments Association
The site is run directly by its plotholders, who each rent a growing space from the Mansewood Allotment Association. The association in turn rents the site from Glasgow City Council.
Each year, at the AGM, a new committee is elected, and these volunteers are responsible for the day-to-day running of the site. This includes the coordination of general site maintenance, woodchip and manure deliveries, pest control, events, finance, and site administration. As Mansewood is focused on community, all plotholders are also expected to carry out at least 4 hours of community work on the site each growing year.
On the edge of the Southside of Glasgow lies Mansewood High Allotments, a place where the local community have grown fruit, vegetables, flowers, and herbs since 1951.
