The city of Havana now produces over 60% of its own food resource within its city limits. This food revolution came around because of another crisis, however Scott Abercrombie writes about how the city can be used as an inspiration for Glasgow, and other cities, and how it/they can respond to the pandemic by producing more locally grown food. 

In Havana their new approach to food growing adapted spaces throughout the city from small pockets of land to much larger stalled sites. Glasgow currently has as much vacant and derelict land as it does parkland, however access to these spaces are often difficult and bound in red tape. 

Scott’s piece explores how Glasgow and its people can adapt spaces both large and small to herald in its own food revolution and ensure more of our food is grown locally. You can read his article by clicking the link below.
