Do you work for an organisation or school in Glasgow that regularly runs cooking and/or food growing activities for your community members or students? Climate Crumbs is a free Train The Trainer Session developed by Glasgow Community Food Network's Food & Climate Action Team. The session aims to support you in developing conversation starters and activities to integrate climate conversations into your growing and cooking activities. We hope that by completing this training with us, you will:

  1. have a greater understanding of how both cooking and growing food are positive climate actions
  2. have more confidence in bringing in climate activities and discussion topics to your group
  3. take away a resource and activity pack to use with your groups and,
  4. receive a digital sticker you can use on your website and social media to show your have completed the training

This training is open to anyone who works/ volunteers with a community organisation or school that regularly runs food-related activities. 

We’ve designed the training so that you can tap into the actions people are already doing, reframing them as positive for the climate e.g. using lentils as a cheaper alternative to meat is also far less carbon intensive.

To be kept up to date with our public sessions, follow us on Eventbrite.


We attended a fantastic workshop yesterday given by @glasgowcommunityfoodnetwork on growing and cooking as positive climate actions and how we can initiate discussions and activities about climate in our own gardening and cooking sessions. Really informative and useful and reinforced how important our community gardens are.
