Episode 135 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

You can download the episode directly here.

This week, Craig talks to Cat Train and Gail Squires from Incredible Edible Neilston, a community growing group who grow food on unused land in their community and give away the produce for free to anyone who needs it. They talk about how they got started guerrilla gardening a piece of council land, how the council and local community supported them to expand and what they’ve been getting up to this season.

You can visit their Facebook page here.
The TED Talk by Pam Warhurst that inspired Cat can be watched here.
And the Policy Podcast on Scotland’s derelict land can be listened to here.

Apologies for the background noise in this show – Cat’s rabbit decided to “help” the Community Growers by tearing a cardboard box into mulch.
