Our 40th Anniversary

Celebrating 40 years of farming, gardening and growing together

2020 was Social Farms & Gardens' 40th Anniversary, but due to the Covid19 pandemic we were unable to go ahead with our planned 40th celebrations and events.

We're happy to be able to say that some of those plans can now be put into action - even if, in some cases, they may be taking a slightly different format than originally planned.

We want to shine a spotlight on the amazing work of all the volunteers, staff and trustees that make up our member organisations and the inspiring initiatives they have put in place to increase sustainability, biodiversity and the wellbeing of people and communities.


What's on in 2021

Youth Forum

We will be launching our new youth forum. This is an exciting opportunity for young people to help direct and shape our plans going forwards. We want to expand engagement with all our members, embed new views and opinions into the organisation and the way we work, and develop new ways to support more involvement of young people in our member projects. Watch this space or follow us on social media to find out more.
