Feeding Liverpool are inviting organisations providing emergency and community food support in Liverpool to join us for a Summer Lunch at Vauxhall Neighbourhood Centre (accessed via Blenheim Street).

We will bring together organisations to listen, learn, share and make connections, as we work towards creating a city where everyone can eat good food.

This will be an opportunity to share sector updates and network over food.

We would encourage each organisation providing emergency or community food support across the city to send a representative to this session.

If you have any questions, including allergy and dietary requirements, please contact Samir.

Right to Grow – Campaign Launch Picnic

 

We are launching a Right to Grow Campaign in Liverpool!

When: Wednesday 19th June 3.30pm – 5.30pm

Where: Everton Community Garden, Prince Edwin Street, Liverpool L5 3LW

Join Community Growers in Liverpool to raise our voices for a Right to Grow.

The main demands of our campaign are to:

  1. Identify all Council owned land suitable for community growing or wildlife projects.
  2. Remove economic and bureaucratic barriers for community groups to obtain leases for this land.
  3. Give community groups right of first refusal should the council choose to sell land being used for community growing.

The day will include an opportunity to hear from national campaigners at Incredible Edible, link up with cities across the North of England who are also launching Right to Grow initiatives, art activities and a free picnic!

You can support the campaign by:

  1. Signing and sharing our open letter.
  2. Inviting you local councillor to join the Right to Grow Launch picnic.
  3. Connect with your local growing space to see if they would support the campaign.
