Community gardens across the capital will be open on Saturday 16 September to welcome in visitors and volunteers to take part in garden activities and share the harvest as a community.

It's free for any Capital Growth garden to take part in The Urban Harvest. We welcome school and community spaces to join the festivities by offering volunteer activities, workshops, tours, talks, community meals or anything else that you feel inspired to put on!
