SF&G has plenty of information about London's community growing scene, including:
London Harvest Festival: The 21st London Harvest Festival took place on Saturday, September 28th at Woodlands Farm in Greenwich. The event is held by London’s community growers each year, providing a wonderful opportunity for a day out for the whole family.
