Women in Farming - FCA x CWIN
Food and Climate Action recently supported a 24-week course in agroecological farming, funded by Solace Women's Aid Empowering Women fund delivered in partnership with Central and West Integration Network.
15 women joined in a transformational programme consisting of a series of weekly tasters in urban agroecology, including market gardening, chicken farming, herbalism, beekeeping, soap making, social enterprise and more.
One women said “Visiting different farms was an eye opener to have an idea of crops grown and livestock reared.” Several of the women were refugees from various countries, and said “This group has given me a drive to want to do more around food growing for our BAME communities.”
Jenny worked with CWIN, the women in the group, Project Coordinator and Photographer Clementine Sandison and artists Josie Vallely and Alkmini Gkousiari to produce the booklet 'Sow a Seed, Grow a World' to capture their learnings. Take a look below.
