Increasing agroecological farming in the Cardiff region: an initial exploration

The Fringe Farming programme, led by Sustain, is a collaboration with partners across the UK to understand barriers, identify opportunities and local actions, and develop national policy to enable agroecological farming at the edge of cities as part of a green economic recovery.

In 2022, Cardiff joined the programme to undertake action planning to highlight opportunities, barriers, and the resources that might be required for next steps.

Today, a report was published summarising the barriers, opportunities and potential actions which the 22 stakeholders identified during the workshop.

As a result, in 2023 Food Cardiff and partners will convene a Fringe Farming working group, which will look at how to take forward this work across the Cardiff Capital Region. If you are interested in finding out more about the project or being part of future discussions please contact
