London Harvest Festival 2018
The 2018 Festival was the first to be held at Woodlands Farm in Greenwich. This was the 20th annual celebration of all the community growing and farming taking place across London, organised by the London City Farms and Community Gardens Association (LCFCGA) with support from the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens (now called Social Farms & Gardens).
The event enables London’s city farms and community gardens to showcase their many community and educational services and achievements.
