Our Meetings

We a have four gatherings a year. Three of these are members meetings; these are primarily members meetings, yet other Community Food projects (CFPs) can attend. Existing members take responsibility for sharing with other projects. The agenda for these meetings will be sent to wider CFGN list a week before (and members list much earlier). These meetings are hosted by a member who nudges others to support agenda setting.

Once a year we have a harvest gathering – with each member taking responsibility for publicizing this to other projects they’d like to see involved. The aim of the summer gathering is to share network with interested projects; opportunity to connect; to eat together; share skills; offers/wants updates space.

For more information see section 4 ‘Gatherings’ on the ‘How we work‘ page.

CFGN members meetings are for London food growers to come together and share skills, offers/wants and common action on wider concerns that impact on our work. They always include a guided tour by the meeting hosts of their food growing site – St Luke’s Garden near Old Street, August 2011
