Kirklees Environment Partnership are hosting an all day event called ‘Growing Communities’ on Wednesday 23rd November. This day of free local food workshops and activities is organised in partnership with Stirley Community Farm, Growing Newsome and Information by Design.
In the morning there will be a series of workshops to inform, inspire and illustrate to you the ways that Newsome residents are growing. Together we have created a range of successful food growing projects, sites, events and education facilities. Our activities over the past two years have enabled local people to grow their own food, created volunteering opportunities, given people new skills and confidence, and helped to build new and stronger relationships.
Join us for these interactive workshops, a home grown lunch of local seasonal food, and a visit to Stirley Community Farm in the afternoon.
This day will be useful for anybody who is involved in education and training, policy making, and community or voluntary organisations who are interested in local food. Places are limited – please book now if you’d like to take part.
