Successful Community Food Projects Workshop

Gavin Hardy

Queensland coordinator, Community Gardens Australia

As the number of community food projects explode, the world's best programs are innovating a variety of growing methods, distribution models, funding arrangements, governance and operation systems. Community food projects are proven performers in a multitude of areas including biodiversity conservation and restoration, food sustainability, community capacity building, and health and wellbeing. In this 45 minute workshop Gavin explores three critical areas for success - typologies, funding and volunteering. Leave the session armed with contacts and tools for taking deeper dives beyond the Forum.
