Our newly launched training pack is your comprehensive guide to the world of urban agriculture, designed to equip enthusiasts and novices alike with the knowledge and skills to cultivate thriving green spaces right in the heart of our cities.

Months of meticulous research, including surveys conducted among young people across consortium countries such as Romania, Bulgaria, Italy, Portugal, Croatia, and Cyprus, have culminated in the creation of this invaluable resource. The insights gleaned from these surveys, alongside in-depth comparative reports soon to be available on our e-learning platform, form the bedrock of our training pack.

But we didn’t stop there. Six focus groups convened on a local basis in each country, with the participation of seasoned experts in agriculture and urban development, to ensure that our training pack reflects the diverse needs and challenges faced by urban farmers across different contexts.
