Purpose of the report
The Growing and Green Space learning report produced by Groundwork UK and The Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens looks at the progress communities have made over an 18 month period, as part of the Big Lottery funded Communities Living Sustainably (CLS) programme. The five year programme, supported by Groundwork(1) provided up to £1 million to twelve communities to test ways of dealing with the potential impact of climate change.
CLS highlights that practical growing activity is proving a good way to introduce people to healthy eating and sourcing food more locally and is providing an effective way to engage a range of people, young and old, in areas facing many challenges including high unemployment and low educational attainment.
