Recording of the Ceremony

On 16th March 2022, Social Farms & Gardens highlighted the work that communities are doing to access underused land to help build resilience to climate change in Wales by holding our very first virtual CLAS Awards ceremony! Through its Community Land Advisory Service Cymru programme, Social Farms & Gardens celebrated 15 projects who are succeeding in the following: Building the health and wellbeing of participants, increasing the amount of community grown food, making effective use of underused spaces across Wales, increasing social prescribing activities, to name just a few! This year we have been fortunate enough to have our groups back at their sites and so we have been able to, with the help of TAPE Community Music and Film, celebrate these groups and their work through a number of short films filmed at their sites!
