The Liverpool Food Growers Network

The Liverpool Food Growers Network aims to create and sustainably develop an integrated network of community food growing projects, organisations and related supportive partners including academia, further education, public, private and third sector organisations, across the Liverpool City Region. It was founded by University of Liverpool academics Dr Charlotte Hardman and Dr Beth Mead along with representatives from the food growing community in Liverpool.

The network and its activities are underpinned by the UKRI-funded research project, Rurban Revolution ( The network has received funding from a BBSRC Impact Acceleration Account award.

The purpose of the network is to:
