Community gardens are everywhere in London- spaces in the city where people learn new skills, spend time with neighbours, complete trainings and qualifications, and enjoy wildlife and plants in an ever increasing built-up urban environment. They show the potential and need for food systems in the city that work with people and nature to produce fresh, nutritious food for all!
The Community Food Growers Network (CFGN) has been meeting community food projects around London with the aim to build an interactive online map that can be used as a tool for people to find food growing projects, and that food growers can find other food growers.
To cover all the brilliant food growing projects in London would be quite a feat, and so we have started with over 35 gardens and plan to add to these in the coming year.
There is still time to add projects to the map and if you would like to be added or know a project that should please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
