Resilient Green Spaces partnership
Cardiff University is proud to be a member of the Resilient Green Spaces partnership. This £1.27m collaboratively designed project led by Social Farms and Gardens is piloting alternative, re-localised food systems using communities and their green spaces as the driving force for change across Wales until June 2023.
Six collaborative workstreams delivered by partners, are testing what communities can achieve, given the right support, access to land and freedom to do what they do best.
- Building a National Allotment Development Team
- Innovative Food Hubs
- Productive Community Orchards
- Greener Corridors and Spaces
- Exploring Community Access to Farms and Land

Cardiff University researchers are investigating how to counter negative perceptions of careers in horticulture farming through creative engagements with young people. They are also delivering evaluation of the project.
