Community Food Event

As part of my work with WLGA, I'm facilitating this free workshop with Katie Jones:

Allotments & Community Grown Food Event, Tuesday 20th September 2011 - Wrexham

As part of its Sustainable Development Framework, the WLGA have begun working in partnership with the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens [FCFCG] on community grown food issues.


The WLGA and FCFCG are organising an event for local authority officers involved in planning and managing allotments and community growing sites.  This event is an opportunity to:


  • inform Local Authorities about developments currently taking place within the community growing sector in Wales (and further afield)

What is the aim? An exploratory event to enable the development of ways to promote good practice in allotments management and provision in Wales; promote resources that can facilitate good practice; develop models of good practice from the event; facilitate the development of supportive networks; signpost to organisations that can give help and support; offer constructive and productive delivery. It is also an opportunity to consult and establish circumstances, needs, barriers, etc. 


Who is the audience? Council staff, and others, responsible for the provision and management of allotments.

What are the desired outcomes?

  • Development of an active, supportive, network in Wales in which council staff responsible for the provision and management of allotments can identify their needs, aspirations and barriers in order for support organisations to develop methods of meeting same;
  • The establishment of a definitive list of council staff responsible for the management and provision of allotments in Wales;
  • This will all help and support the strategic direction of council allotments’ services and land use planning at a localised level in Wales.

What will the day include?

  • Talks & discussions from various experts in the field.
  • Allotment case-studies from Local Authorities and communities.
  • Networking opportunities.
  • Workshops to share information and identify support needed.

Venue: Alan Waters Building, Alan Waters Country Park, Mold Road, Gwersyllt, Wrexham LL11 4AL
