Kotare Trust invites you to the following workshop:

Community Gardening & Collective Food Action

10am Friday 27th – 4pm Saturday 28th November 2009

This workshop is a space for people actively involved in collective food action around Aotearoa to come together to talk about the issues behind community food projects. It will include time to talk about participant’s projects, share knowledge, and explore the challenges and opportunities in this area.

At the workshop we will do some talking together – reflecting, sharing, visioning and networking. We will look at community gardening and other collective food projects in the context of the economic crisis and discuss the ways that community gardening can more effectively address poverty and improve community resilience. We will also get our hands dirty and do some gardening!

Who For:       People that are actively involved in community food projects. We welcome participants from last year’s workshop to attend again this year. We hope to have participants from different geographical areas who are involved in a variety of projects.

Cost: $30 for waged people. Food and accommodation provided

Registration:Please register as soon as possible and no later than the 1st of November. Numbers are limited, so get in quick!

The workshop is at Kotare – 510 Wayby Station Road, Hoteo North, Wellsford. Food and accommodation provided. If you need assistance with travel, please contact us and we will see whether we can help.

This workshop is the second workshop of a series held over 3 years, and is made possible with support from the Tindall Foundation

  1. I am attempting to get a community gardening project going here in Hokianga. It has happened before, but my vision includes much more community involvement so that it will benefit youth and that emerging social problems will transform naturally through just being involved with others. I am open to learn from other community projects and welcome any help and information.
