'Business Planning For Community Growers' is a course taking place over four sessions. It has been designed to help community growers get to grips with strategic planning and produce a business plan for their project.

Other sessions in the series cover marketing, financial planning, legal structures and bringing it all together. Each session takes place at a different community growing site in the South West.

We strongly encourage you to attend as many of the four sessions as you can. You will need to book separately for each session that you wish to attend.
