“If anyone wants to get involved in creating a sanctuary for pollinators get in touch with @herbalunitygarden.|The Herbal Unity Garden was created 7 years ago out the back of Glasgow Autonomous space (GAS) to grow medicinal herbs. Sadly GAS has closed its doors but the garden lives on. It’s currently growing wild and is situated in a very industrial area. Rather than let the landlord clear us off we hope to continue to maintain this little green refuge in the face of huge environmental degradation in urban areas. We are keen to grow as many pollinator friendly plants and flowers to create a wee nectar cafe to support the bees, insects and wildlife that visit this small green space. Looking for anyone who might enjoy this wee project !”(April 30, 2023, https://www.instagram.com/p/CroE2p7s-0R/)

“【Introduction】Climate change and our cost of living crisis have forced us to think differently about how we access our food and treat our planet. In England alone, 82% of the population live in urban areas, with little breathing space to embrace nature. But community gardens could offer a solution. So gal-dem has put together a guide on cultivating your own little patch of green…”
◇Phillips, J'Nae, 2022, "Can Allotments Save Britain's Neglected Communities?", gal-dem, February 25, 2022, (https://gal-dem.com/allotments-britains-neglected-communities/).
“【Caption】With food insecurity on the rise, and a lack of access to outdoor spaces for marginalised groups, are allotments the answer?”/“【Quot.】A lack of government assistance has led people to cultivate their own fresh food solutions, choosing to grow their own produce as an alternative way to source food. Allotments run by people from minority backgrounds can uplift overlooked and vulnerable communities by giving them equal access to fresh food and nature that those from more privileged backgrounds get to enjoy with relative ease.”

“【Caption】A new approach to tending green spaces is taking root, and it's regenerative, rule-breaking and welcoming of us all.”/“【Exordium】It was for good reason that farmer and food sovereignty activist Leah Penniman began her [2018] book Farming While Black with the Malcolm X quote: “Land is the basis of freedom, justice, and equality.” During the pandemic, the privilege of access to green spaces where you can learn, grow and breathe was thrown into sharp relief. But for the most marginalised in society, especially Black people and people of colour, struggling to find green spaces is nothing new. Nor is it an accident.”

“【Abstract】Finally, the paper suggests that community gardens can be conceptualised as feminist spaces, given their fluidity and capacity to enable critical perspectives in volunteers, which may result in alternative forms of political action. The paper concludes with suggestions for further critical research on UA spaces.”

“【Caption】In honor of the 90th anniversary of one of the country's earliest Black garden clubs, experts look back at the important work of these organizations, which reaches far outside the garden plot.”/“【Exordium】On April 22, 1932, at Hampton University in Hampton, Virginia, seven community garden clubs joined forces to found the Negro Garden Club of Virginia (later known as the Virginia Garden Clubs). This group grew and grew―eventually becoming one of the nation's largest Black garden clubs, comprising over 60 chapters across the state. Ninety years later, Philadelphia's Morris Arboretum celebrated the anniversary of this original confluence this April with the Ethel Early Clark Symposium (named for the Club's first president), a gathering of garden and horticultural experts who made the case that the mission and impact of the Club―and others like it―remain deeply relevant today.”

“【Introduction】As the cost of living crisis worsens across the UK, more and more people are struggling to put food on the table. The number of food-insecure households has doubled since January 2020, while food bank usage has grown exponentially under successive Tory governments, from under 70,000 food bank users in 2010 to more than two million in 2021. People with children, or on Universal Credit, disabled people and people of colour are particularly worse off.”
