We want to host food growing workshops and outdoor learning activities. Staff resources will facilitate this involvement and work to ensure barriers to engagement such as mobility issues, childcare, food insecurity and mental health issues are reduced/eliminated. We will work closely with partner organisations such as housing support officers, GP practices, youth projects, and schools to identify and reach local people to involve them in the design, development and delivery of the project. New people will be engaged through social media campaigning and our community food newsletter will promote access to resources. Local children and young people will be well informed and able to access allotment sessions and growing food classes.

The key activities are:

+ More people will gain gardening and food growing skills

+ More people have an understanding about climate change, sustainability such as composting, organic growing, food miles and food waste

+ More people involved in physical activity through gardening

+ More children gain food growing skills, learn about their environment, sustainability and build a connection to nature
