FCFCG is delivering a three-year programme in Wales called Tyfu Pobl (Growing People). The programme is funded through the Rural Development Plan for Wales, which is itself funded by the Welsh Assembly Government and the EU.
Our team in Wales supports and advises both existing and emerging community growing projects, enabling the sharing and transfer of best practice information, knowledge and skills. Tyfu Pobl supports a variety of community growing models including: community farms/gardens/orchards, allotments, community supported agriculture and community-managed market gardens.
