Celebrate Urban Agriculture and Community Gardens

Yesterday, I attended the launch of an artist book by Blair Cunningham representing Glasgow's spaces linking food and community. This event took place at the CCA as part of The Only Way is Ethics Festival. This book is developed from research into community gardens by the University of Glasgow.

Artist book, Urban Agriculture Growing Care, by Blair Cunningham

The number of community gardens has increased over the last 10 years in Glasgow. There are approximately 60 sites identified in this artist book. Key aspects about these spaces are that they are not for profit, promote general health and wellbeing, support collective activity, are diverse and celebrate solidarity. Copies of the artist book are available from Aye Aye Books.
