10 New Groups Cultivate Community Farming

Cultivating Community Farming Induction day

An induction day brought together 10 early-stage community-farming projects who between them are the recipients of a new innovative community farming Cultivating Community Farming (CCF) support programme funded by the Co-op Foundation in Northern Ireland. The project will accelerate the growth and capacity of community farming projects across Northern Ireland over a 2-year period, with access seed funding to the value of £2,500 for each selected project.

They will benefit from networking, mentoring, skills development and capacity building, which will contribute towards a flourishing community farming sector and the importance of community access to and involvement with food, farming and nature.
