Gardening expert Nicola Singleton visits 'The Concrete Garden' in Possilpark, Glasgow, where the local community have transformed a derelict building site into an urban oasis. Joined by Project Manager Moira McCaig and Garden Development Worker Paula McCabe, she hears how growing, cooking and eating together provide refuge and relationship.

Chef John Quigley serves up a Possilpark pizza using freshly foraged produce from the garden, while Nicola takes a tour of The Back Garden, where the team have developed a natural play area for the local community.
