Growing Livelihoods

Our partnership with the Plunkett Foundation has taken an important step forward, together with the Carnegie UK Trust.

Growing-Livelihoods-Final-Colour-smallGrowing Livelihoods will work to create new opportunities in smaller-scale food growing for young people, those new to the sector or those seeking a new direction. We aim to help people through co-operation and innovation to create skilled jobs that provide viable livelihoods.  This project will have a particular focus on shortening food supply chains and the opportunities this could present.

The partnership builds on a history between the organisations that stretches back to 1934, and the development of the Land Settlement Association as a pioneering scheme that enabled thousands of people to achieve livelihoods as food growers which they would not have been able to achieve alone.
