The Resilient Green Spaces project, led by UK charity Social Farms & Gardens, will pilot alternative and re-localised food systems using communities and their green spaces as a driving force for change across Wales. This exciting project will empower communities across Wales and lead the way for change for the benefit of growers, consumers, and the climate.
The project has six pioneering strands of work that will test what local people can achieve together given the right support, access to land and freedom to do what they do best:
This groundbreaking project is the result of a partnership between Social Farms & Gardens, Cardiff University Sustainable Places Research Institute, Development Trusts Association Wales, Gwynedd Council, The Landworkers’ Alliance, Lantra, Open Food Network, and Shared Assets. It has received funding through the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
