Taking time to consult with the various stakeholders, both internal and external to the institution, was one of the key factors of the success of the EC Community Garden & Orchards project which won the Student Engagement category at the 2015 Green Gown Awards.

In this session, the EC Community Garden & Orchards Coordinator shared the different consultation scenarios encountered within the project since its development and gave tips and ideas on how consultation time can help to develop a sustainable project.

The session showed participants what can be done, gave attendees opportunities to reflect on their own practice and provided new inspiration for future consultations.
