Business Planning For Community Growers (Various locations, North East England)

'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.

Each session takes place at a different community growing site in Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead.

We strongly encourage you to attend all four sessions. We also encourage you to attend with a colleague so that learning can be shared and ensuring that at least two members of staff can contribute to your business plan.

The inaugural School Farms Network Education Alliance Conference, hosted by The Royal Agricultural University (RAU) at its Cirencester campus, is designed to provide a focal point for reviving interest in school based farming and the critical role farms in schools have in supporting the development of a holistic education approach.
