Training Events & Workshops

Training designed for you

Throughout the year and across the UK, we offer training events and workshops on all aspects of community-managed city farming and community gardening, including:

  • Animal husbandry and welfare
  • Community involvement
  • Funding and budgeting
  • Horticulture
  • Land use management
  • Legal requirements
  • Committee and management roles
  • Working with young people, volunteers and people with special needs
  • Planning and design
  • Staffing

We regularly highlight training events through the regional and country pages of our website and via our social media links (remember: paid members get a hefty discount on these training events).

In addition, we can usually put you in touch with a city farm or community garden within travelling distance from you and are always happy to provide advice and support on the community management of gardens and farms. Advice can be given by correspondence on the telephone or on site where appropriate.

Starting a community garden or farm?

We recommend that anyone planning to start up a new group reads our Community Growing Resource Packs. You can find these in the resources section.

If you want to find out what training events (and networking opportunities) are available near you, please visit the In Your Area page.
