Growing Awareness: Planning Food Cities
12th May 2017, 2-3.30pm
Sustainable Food Cities and Sustain invite you to join their webinar which will take place on Friday 12th May at 2-3.30pm. You will be able to hear from and ask questions on how Council’s Local Plans impact on the creation of new food growing spaces. Hull Food Partnership will explain how they went about getting a food growing policy in their local plan. The webinar will also include a case study of a new development in Leeds and you will hear how having a policy in Kensington and Chelsea helps the parks service find space for growing.
