On Thursday 21st January 2021 at 6.30pm join the authors of St Werburghs City Farm’s Equity Report as they share their exploration of the barriers to access to urban farms for diverse communities and recommendations to remove them.
About this Event
In this evening session, the authors of the St Werburghs City Farm (SWCF) Equity Report, Manu Manganidze, Rhian Grant and Esme Worrell will share the processes and key learnings from this year long exploration into the barriers to access for ethnic minority communities at SWCF and urban farms in general.
The report and the recommendations shared within are intended to act as a blueprint for change that will positively influence SWCF’s spaces and services. The report acts as a catalyst for change, guiding SWCF to evolve into a more inclusive environment that is an asset to all of the diverse communities within walking distance of the site.
It is intended that in sharing the findings, the research can act similarly for other organisations. Through sharing SWCF’s actions moving forward, they hope to inspire and push forward an agenda of racial equity, inclusion and diversity across urban farms and related sectors.
Kari Halford and Jess Clynewood, co-Directors of the Farm, will share how they plan to implement these recommendations and share the progress.
Navaratnam Partheeban MRCVS, trustee at SWCF, will offer a closing statement and chair any questions from the audience.
