Paula McCabe, Concrete Garden, Glasgow

Currently working with the Concrete Garden in Possilpark, Glasgow, Paula has been working in the field of urban community growing and social/therapeutic horticulture for the past eight years.

She spoke about the development of the space, and what it means to the people involved; to consider the significance of community growing spaces where folk come together to work on a shared project and common goals; and how – set against the logic of individualism and consumer capitalism – the creation of such spaces, with the creativity, co-operation and conviviality they embody, can become a radical and counter-cultural act.
