A team of researchers at the University of Glasgow, Professors Deirdre Shaw, Andrew Cumbers, Robert McMaster and Dr John Crossan, have uncovered strong evidence that participation in a community garden can boost health and well-being, promote social inclusion, enhance community relations, and improve learning.

This research has contributed to the development of the Glasgow Food Policy Partnership.
