At Sow the City, we offer a consultancy service using our extensive knowledge of community food projects, partnership working and community enterprise, to provide technical, evaluation and business advice. 
We have worked with a wide range of clients from small business through to government departments and large organisations.
Technical advice - we work with Manchester City Council to conduct site assessments of new food growing sites across the city. Providing a detailed analysis of growing conditions, potential infrastructure development and community engagement opportunities. Evaluation - Sow the City undertook an evaluation project with Southway Housing Trust into their Growing Communities programme. We used geomapping to identify areas within their estates that could be targeted for future food growing outreach. Business advice - we worked with the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens to provide bespoke business planning advice for small to medium sized community growing groups in the Manchester area. Asset mapping - Sow the City have been commissioned by the NHS to undertake food poverty mapping across Manchester.
