We are a partnership project involving the 3 main further and higher education institutions of Sheffield, the local community food network, Grow Sheffield, and Fareshare Yorkshire.
We aim to raise sustainability awareness amongst students and staff in higher education, further education and the communities of Sheffield through a focus on food.
