Urban Food Growing for Climate and Community Resilience
A project funded by City Bridge Trust to help protect and create climate-friendly food gardens for thousands of Londoners.
This work, led by London Food Growing network Capital Growth, will help tackle the climate and nature emergency by protecting and increasing opportunities for nature-friendly food growing across the capital. The funding will help demonstrate and enhance the role urban food gardens can and should play in addressing and mitigating, climate change and nature loss, in London, as well as in creating community resilience.
Launched in Summer 2021, this project is funded for 3 years.
