Jude Thoburn-Price has a great deal of experience in community engagement and development work, finance, workshop delivery, creative media and the arts. She is interested in helping others who like her, are find it challenging to get by during these COVID times.
Jude recently graduated from University with an Electronic Music Production Degree, but because of the Covid pandemic, and the diminished opportunities in the music industry and education, has decided not ot pursue a PhD, but to help people within her community in Trowbridge, Cardiff to access and grow food. She would like to help people within her community to learn about growing and wants to help them learn about how growing and using veg can provide healthly nutritious meals for them and their family.
From plant pots to gardens to allotments, Jude would also like to help to start a grow and swap community where she lives and would like to connect with other like-minded people to try and drive this as a city agenda helping the people of Cardiff.
Jude says that having lived through tough times of the 1970’s and 80’s, she believes that gardening and growing veg and food is good for people’s mental health and wellbeing, and that growing your own veg enables access to good, nutritional food and that knowing how to cook and prepare it is vital.
