Since the pandemic our online Networking events have been a go to space for our ever growing network of individuals, community, third sector groups, social enterprises, local authority and other government workers.
Together with our Local Partners we have hosted a huge variety of events over the years. You can have a look at many of them via the link at the bottom of this page. Over the next few months we continue to work with our local partners to bring engaging and inspiring events and sessions.

Back to our Roots: Growing and Sharing without Boarders - Networking Event
Diverse communities have found a home in the UK for thousands of years, but the growing of traditional foods has remained scattered and isolated. Many vegetables and greens, such as okra and callaloo, require a warm climate, making them more difficult to grow in the UK context. They have become specialist imported items, often only available in big cities and at higher cost to both communities and climate. How can we better connect to grow more ourselves, both opening up access and reducing supply chains?
Led by Food Adventure with support from the Soil Association's Food For Life Get Togethers team, the session will opening with a panel discussion from speakers with a range of expertise on growing and community. We will move into an open discussion of challenges, best practices and the kind of network we need to put into place to strengthen this work.
The event is open to all, but we are keen to learn from and share with home gardeners, allotment growers, community gardener or farmers who are growing or wish to grow these types of greens and vegetables.
Speakers will include
- Carol Adams, Director, Food Adventure Social Enterprise Ltd
- Danny & Tenesia Pascal, owners, Earth To Earth Organics
- Eric Ngang - Kushinga garden community
- Rickey Bryan - Rickey's Alkaline Market Garden and Fruit Forest
The live event will be recorded for those unable to attend on the day.
