Social Farms & Gardens have got a great networking event planned for Saturday 11th May in the Duncairn centre in Belfast. We will follow a day of workshops with a social in the evening.
We are lucky enough to have Pam Warhurst from Incredible Edible coming to speak, if you have ever heard her, you’ll know how encouraging and inspiring she is to listen to. The Incredible Edible vision is to create kind, confident and connected communities through the power of food. Pam and her friends in Todmorden turned spare green spaces in their town into productive food growing areas. They used growing as a visible sign of a kinder community – Incredible Edible has spread throughout the UK and globally.
We will be running a number of fun practical workshops aiming to share the skills existing in our communities. We will also have discussions to bring out the needs and issues of our sector, to enable us to represent ourselves better to decision makers and funders. We’d like to hear from you what these discussions should centre around: Let us know what is important to you right now, and what skills and knowledge you have to share.
Lunch will be provided.
There will be a site visit to Peas Park, a shared growing space run by local artists from North Belfast, followed by a Garden Party at GROW community garden, in the Waterworks Park.
This event is kindly funded through the People and Communities programme of the National Lottery Community Fund.
