Regional Networking

The regional networking activities of Growing Care Farming cover 9 regions of England

Due to COVID -19 for the moment all face to face training and events are postponed, but we are still delivering alternative support virtually. We are particularly keen to hear directly from you about what virtual support would help you - virtual meetings, training courses or just opportunities to speak to other care farmers for support and reassurance. Email carefarming@farmgarden.org.uk to get in touch

We piloted regional networking in Yorkshire & Humberside from October 2019 to March 2020 and have started the planning process in the North East and the North West. 

Our regional work is composed of  events, themed webinars, online care farmer network meetings and training. See our upcoming events here

Although face to face work is paused until January 2021, from then, we plan to  roll out the regional engagement to a new region every month. The roll out will follow a similar pattern for all regions but will recognise their own specific identities and particular needs.
