Senior Research Assistant Lizzi Bos was recently awarded £800 to run an event as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science week in November, with a team from CBiS. The event aims to showcase community food growing in Lambeth, London and draws upon Lizzi's doctoral research.
As well as sharing the research findings the event aims to celebrate successful examples of community food growing initiatives and collaboration between the community, Lambeth Council, and Myatt’s Fields Park (third sector organisation).
“I’m really excited about this event as it’s a great opportunity to promote the benefits of communal food growing in local spaces, and to hear about people’s real life and meaningful experiences. I hope that it promotes lessons learned from my research findings to ensure the sustainability of these key spaces for the community” - Lizzi
Lizzi recently revisited Lambeth to reconnect with participants from her doctoral study who were now more enthused than ever about community food growing, some of whom feature in the film.
