Growing in the Community

Join Feeding Liverpool and Liverpool Food Growers Network to network and find out how your organisation can establish a community food growing project

This afternoon session will be an opportunity for community food spaces (food pantries, food hubs, community markets) across the Liverpool City Region to network, meet community growers, and find out how they can establish and develop their own community food growing projects.

We welcome organisations who are also interested in growing herb and flower gardens for their community, and anyone with growing experience who would like to support these organisations.

Refreshments and a light plant-based lunch will be provided by Eat Up Gud.

You will hear from speakers from Kensington Fields Community Association, Grow-Wellbeing and Alchemic Kitchen talking about their experiences of setting up and running community growing projects across the region.

There will also be discussion time focusing on the following topics:

  • Engaging the Public Sector on Land Access
  • How can you integrate wellbeing with food growing into Health and Social Care
  • Distributing the food you grow
  • Evidencing your impact
  • So you want to set up a food growing project

When: 12:30pm – 3pm, Wednesday 21st June
