A programme of national and regional events offered by the Growing Care Farming project. The programme includes regular themed webinars, network meetings, training courses and launch events for those working in the sector.
The Growing Care Farming project is being delivered by Social Farms & Gardens, in partnership with Thrive, and is part of the Government Programme for Children & Nature (supported by Defra, is funded by the Department of Education and managed by Natural England).
Growing Care Farming aims to transform the scale of the care farming sector across England, creating more opportunities for children and adults with a defined need to benefit from specialist health, care and educational services provided on care farms.
These events are taking place regularly until 2023. Due to DOVID -19 these will be delivered online until restictions are lifted and it is safe to move back to physical meetings.
Social Farms & Gardens is an accredited training provider with the British Accreditation Council.
