London

London has the largest concentration of city/care 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. Take a look at the following video to find out more: 

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

  • London Harvest Festival: This year's event, on Saturday 29th September, will mark 20 years of the London Harvest Festival. Held by London's community growers each year, this is a great day out for all the family. There's also a new venue - Woodlands Farm in Greenwich.

  • 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.
