Registration open for new course: Promoting urban food growing through digital storytelling
Food growers across UK cities are invited to take part in a free, online spring course to explore the benefits of urban food growing by using digital storytelling tools.
As part of the ‘Digital Storytelling and Community Food Growing’ project, growers in London, Reading and other UK cities have produced stories describing how growing food in their cities has created community resilience, a sense of collaboration and inclusion and extended their social networks during the pandemic.

The 'Visual Storytelling about Community Food Growing' course, which was piloted in spring 2021 and developed by the Cobra Collective, is inviting new participants to take part in their third online course this spring. The deadline to apply is 26 February and course dates are:
