Landed community kitchens: Growing relationships and collaborations between social justice oriented community kitchens and local agroecological farms

Activity: Consultancy


The project is funded by a grant from the ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council) to kickstart a conversation that will lead to the codesign of a larger action-research project by people in the workshop keen to take it further.

The Project Lead is Chiara Tornaghi, Centre for Agroecology, Water and Resilience, Coventry University. The Co-Leads are Maddy Longhurst, Urban Agriculture Consortium, and myself.

We aim to bring together a group of up to 30 people from local agroecological farms and social justice-oriented kitchens in urban and peri-urban places in the North of England. Participants will be broadly aligned to food sovereignty principles and interested in developing this work.

Using a participatory action research design from the onset, we will deliver impact on every step of the research process, initially focusing on building links between community kitchens and local farms in North England.
