Build skills within your organisation to support young people to get growing and learn basic growing skills
About this Event

Following from the success of the popular Food Leaders course, Children's Edible Bristol is now pleased to offer Growing Food Leaders, in collaboration with Feeding Bristol adn Te Children's Kitchen. This course aims to build skills within community groups, schools, charities, youth organisations and the play sector to encourage children and young people to grow edible produce and create fruitful and biodiverse growing spaces across Bristol.

The course is for people who work with a group of children or young people and have a garden where you can develop a growing area. This could be a school or early years setting, an adventure playground, a youth group or charity organisation. We assume a basic knowledge of gardening already and will build skills and confidence around teaching others how to garden in a sustainable and practical way.

The four sessions course will run through the Spring/Summer season with one session in April, May, June and then September so that we can see the effects of seasonal change on our planting area. You can choose one of three time slots to suit your calendar and will need to book in advance by following this link:
