In 2014, due to local demand for additional growing space, Concrete Garden worked alongside local partners and ERZ landscape architects to develop a new community growing site. ‘The Back Garden’ opened in November 2014 and is now in its fourth growing season.
Situated on a derelict piece of land behind the Possilpark Health and Care Centre on Kilearn and Carbeth Street , the garden has space for 25 individual plot holders, 10 plots taken by local groups and organisations, and 12 large communal plots.
There are plenty of opportunities to get involved, learn about growing food, get outside and meet new people. We have a whole host of activities planned for the year, including regular weekday and evening social gardening drop in sessions, weekend action days and events, Grow Your Own workshops and courses and family gardening sessions. Check our facebook page for upcoming events and activities.

Also located at the Back Garden is our Natural Play Area. We host regular outdoor play sessions – you can find dates and times in our calendar section.
