More than 30 people came together for the Community Growers Gathering that took place on Saturday 19th October 2013, three days after World Food Day.

People traveled from across the South West to participate in the day.

Participants introduced themselves then shared their access to land stories and queries with Jade Bashford from the Community Land Advisory Service.

Nicole Vosper from Incredible Edible Somerset then facilitated a participatory workshop on food sovereignty. People talked in groups about what the different principles would look like if achieved in the communities, as well as barriers they face.

The group had a delicious lunch prepared by Two Trees Catering, followed by a tour of Frieze Hill Community Orchard. Everyone then enjoyed cake and a consultation about what our networks need to survive and thrive.

Somerset Master Gardener Michele Darnell-Roberts also led a container gardening workshop.

Overall it was a fantastic day with abundant networking and lots of opportunities for working together in the future.

The event was organised in partnership by the Federation of City Farms & Community Gardens and Incredible Edible Somerset.

Take a look at the photographs and resources from the day below:
