Gathering Ground is a non-profit community food space where locals and others can meet, share food, learn & create great connections.

Launching Spring 2022

About Gathering Ground

Our aim is to create gathering spaces that use food as a platform to impact the community, build connections and encourage creative learning.

We believe that genuine social bonds between people are what create meaningful communities. Gathering Ground is a space that nurtures & strengthens those bonds.

Food is our connector to the local & wider community. Our space hosts engaging & informative food focused events that celebrate diversity & collaboration.

In all we do we support organic growing methods & promote environmentally sustainable & ethical practises.

Let’s Get Together!


We offer a mix of programs and events, ranging from supper clubs, storytelling and music nights, to poetry, and a variety of talks, courses and creative workshops. Majority of our events have a food focus (but we occasionally mix it up!)

We will be launching our event program in Spring 2022


If you are passionate about our work, then you can get involved here! We are always on the lookout for enthusiastic people to volunteer & make a difference in the local community.


With such a diverse community there is much food for thought. We love sharing stories, viewpoints and ideas.  Read our blog for articles, recipes & the latest updates.

Old Basin House

Old Basin House is a C-Listed Building that was originally built in 1790s. The building has had many uses in the past but was left derelict following a fire in 1997. Historically the site was the terminus of the Forth & Clyde Canal. It is believed that engineer Hugh Baird once resided here.

With the support of Regeneration Capital Grant Funding & Historic Scotland funding was raised to restore the building to its original glory.
