Calling all food growers!
By Laura Whitehead 24th February 2012
Are you interested in composting and growing your own? Saving money, being involved with community activities and eating really good food?
The Community Composting Network has received funding from Local Food for a two and a half year project called Community Composting for Local Food the aim of the project is to help local communities grow their own food crops and to make and use their own high quality compost. The project will increase skills in composting for growing local food by delivering specially developed accredited training courses at up to 15 training sites across England. To back up the training there will be further support in the form of networking workshops and equipment loans which will support the trainees to put their learning into action on their own local food growing projects, and get their own Community Composting scheme up and running.
If you are a local food grower and would like to be involved in the project why not come along to one of the free seminars below to find out more – complimentary locally sourced lunch included! They promise to be jam packed with information and inspirational ideas. The seminars will run from 12pm to 4pm.
