Time & Location

22 Mar 2024, 11:00 – 13:00

ROOM 02/018, Queens Uni Belfast, 7, 9 College Park E, Belfast BT7 1PS, UK

About the event

The two-year programme was funded by Co-op Foundation and delivered by a partnership between Co-operative Alternatives and Jubilee Farm with the support of Dr. Jonny Hanson.

The accelerator programme gave birth to a new social actor: the Community Farmer, a multi-skilled and driven activist that through co-operation and community involvement explores a variety of sustainable practices on local land.

The journey to become a community farm is not an easy one but it can be transformative. The audience will hear the story of Jubilee Farm with other new community farms from the region. Co-operative Alternatives will share the impacts of the support provided during the Cultivating Community Farming programme. The discussion panel will be open for questions.
