If you’re interested in growing your own food, or already have a flourishing veg patch, check out the activities taking place in and around London for Urban Food Fortnight.
Urban Food Fortnight takes place from 14th to 29th September 2013 so why not head along to meet like-minded growers from around the city, take part in grow your own activities or attend a pop up dinner in a polytunnel!
This is the capital’s second Urban Food Fortnight and allows food growers to sell their fruit, vegetables, salads, herbs and honey to local restaurants and shops. This supports the growers but also encourages eateries and shops to promote real ultra-local food.
There will also be fundraising events, an Edible Gardens Open Day (21st Sept) with over 50 food-growing spaces opening to the public, a dinner prepared by The Table Café at St Mungo’s community garden, as well as pop up cocktail bars in Skip Garden.
The event is part of the Capital Growth project, long supported by Seed Pantry, which is a partnership initative between London Food Link, the Major of London Boris Johnson and the Big Lottery Fund. It supports and encourages people to grow food in London, whether at home, on allotments, or as part of a community group.
