London

London has the largest concentration of city farms and community gardens of any UK city, so there are loads of places to visit, volunteer or support. London's network of farms and gardens offer services to business, schools and health commissioners; corporate volunteering, venue hire, landscaping, workshops, creches, after-school clubs, social/care farming, mobile farms and much, much more.

FCFCG has plenty of information about London's community growing scene, including:

  • London Harvest Festival: This year's event took place on September 30th and will reach its 20th anniversary in 2018. Held by London's community growers each year, this is a great day out for all the family.

  • London Map: (published 2014). A colourful map of London's city farms and community gardens. Many of these sites are open to visitors or offer opportunities for volunteering, work training or education.

  • Resources Page: There are lots of useful information resources available for London community growers in our resources section.
