There were a host of questions and the format allowed for lots of discussion so we've written up the highlights in this blog.
This event was organised as part of the Food Learning Forum, a peer-learning network made up of programme managers of Lottery-funded projects related to food. Funded by the National Lottery, the Forum aims to draw together expertise from both within the organisations and from external facilitators as appropriate and share this with wider food and farming networks. It is coordinated by Sustain: the alliance for better food and farming and has been running since October 2019.
