Sit Reps Focus Group
As part of the allotment strategy process, a site reps focus group took place on 19th November. The full report is linked at the bottom of this page.
The key focus of this event was to provide an opportunity for the voice of site reps to be heard and their opinions and perspective included in the consultation on development of an Allotment Strategy for Brighton and Hove. The workshop followed hot on the heels of a large consultation event with plot holders and plot waiting listers held the previous week. Outcomes of this event with specific relevance to site reps were incorporated into the workshop for site reps to consider and discuss.
The workshop was facilitated by Ben Messer from Food Matters using an approach based on Participatory Appraisal. The facilitation established an inclusive, mutually respectful, engaging environment where the individual opinions and suggestions of each participant were equally valued and participants were able to build on each others’ thinking.
Thanks to the Site Reps who attended and represented their respective allotment sites.
