Protecting food growing spaces: two new guides for action
Guides explore how to protect community food growing spaces
In a sprawling city, what rights do food growers have? How can we protect future work? And what can we do when a site is under threat?
CPRE has worked with Capital Growth to launch two brand-new guides on protecting food growing sites, and what you can do when a site is at risk. Download the guides here.
The first guide, Protecting a food growing site for the future, focuses on preventative measures. It covers two main ways you can protect your food growing space:
- Designate it as a protected area
- Monitor threats
The second, Saving a food growing site that is under threat, helps communities respond if they are already at risk of losing access to their site, owing to a planning application for the land. It provides a range of actions that fall under two categories:
- Planning & legal
- Political campaigning
