UK Conference: Growing Better Lives 2018
A conference exploring and celebrating the links between community growing, care farming, health and wellbeing.
Who is this conference aimed at?
Community growing and care farming practitioners, health commissioners, policy makers and academics. The conference will reflect on the increasingly strong body of evidence about the positive influence of farming and gardening in care and health contexts. It will look at how best to harness those positive benefits in the future.
What is the conference about?
It will celebrate the launch of a new organisation, resulting from the merger between the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens and Care Farming UK. The new organisation, whose name will be unveiled at the conference, will build on the work of the two current organisations, representing and supporting the delivery of care services and community development through farming and gardening activities.
