Happy new year from the Community Food Growers Network!

This year, we’ve got some big plans: we’ll keep on putting food growing on the agenda for the London Plan – the document that shapes planning decisions across London – to fight against gentrification, and for a city that nurtures the environmental and community impact of community food growing projects. We’ll also be strengthening our network of food growing projects across London so we can share strengths and skills and team up for fantastic events.

London for What? – 12th + 13th November – Sign up!

Sign up here to confirm a place at the weekend >> https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/land-for-what-tickets-28307396184

We want to bring people together to talk about how land ownership and control is central to all these issues. Together we can unite to fight for the changes we need.

Land For What? is a collaborative space for learning about and challenging the way land is owned, controlled and used in the UK and beyond.

Join us on 12th and 13th November for a participatory weekend of learning, thinking and planning practical action.
