Celebrating 40 years of farming, gardening and growing together

News item first posted on: 08/01/20

This year Social Farms & Gardens are celebrating 40 years of farming, gardening and growing together. 

2020 will be packed full of activities to celebrate the 40th. From monthly events UK wide including the European Federation of City Farms Conference and Growing Care Farming Conference, to the the special 40th Anniversary SF&G Awards - where winners will receive their awards at the House of Lords. Plus, a new chance for younger people to get involved, through the launch of our Youth Forum - an exciting opportunity for young people to help direct and shape our plans going forwards.

A big part of the year’s celebrations will be celebrating the incredible diversity and impact of our members across our digital platforms throughout the year. 

We'll be shining a spotlight on the amazing work of all the volunteers, staff and trustees that make up the very fabric of our member organisations and the inspiring initiatives created to increase sustainability, biodiversity and the wellbeing of people and communities.
