This immersive food-growing session is tailored for educators, public health officers and anyone interested in growing in schools and community spaces.

Explore Hackney School of Food’s dedicated food-growing space, learn through interactive activities and gain practical insights into setting up and sustaining your own food-growing site.

Likdra will share how to link food-growing to your school curriculums, how to create inclusive educational opportunities, bring healthier eating habits in your schools, support children’s mental wellbeing and how to create supportive community network for your growing spaces.

Bring your ideas and questions, to discuss with the expert and learn about their school growing experiences alongside fellow educators passionate about food-growing.

Tickets are half price for Capital Growth members and free for staff in the school superzones.

The Superzones training series is funded by The GLA, who are working with Capital Growth, London’s largest food growing network, to develop support for schools and community-based food growers within superzone areas.
