To celebrate the start of Spring, we've teamed up with Incredible Education to bring you a Seasonal Seed Planting workshop!

Incredible Education is a social enterprise specialising in health & well-being programmes that are delivered through horticulture and forest school activities. Their sessions support groups and individuals of all ages, from birth to older age. Incredible Education are bringing the community in Salford together through growing and celebrating local produce and plants, all on a shoestring budget. At this event, guest speaker Ian Bocock will be helping us learn all about sustainable growing and producing your own veg, as well us facilitating a seasonal seed-planting workshop where you can take home your very own veggie seedling!

It is free to attend, but spaces are limited to booking is essential!
The Green House, 244-254 Cambridge Heath Road, London E2 9DA.
Join us as we launch our new toolkit for food alliances on empowering people to tell their story and shape solutions for tackling food poverty. What have we learnt over the last two years of involving those with lived experience of food poverty? And what do alliances need to consider when empowering those at a grassroots level?

Ben Pearson, Food Power's Empowerment Officer will introduce the toolkit, followed by Lisa Howard at Food Plymouth, Hannah Fenton at Good Food Oxford and a representative from Blackburn with Darwen Food Alliance reflecting on what impact empowering people has had on shaping solutions for tackling food poverty within their local alliances, and what advice they would give to those wanting to involve grassroots people.
