Spotlight gardens

Capital Growth's Spotlight Garden programme shines a light on the role of London’s food growing spaces in building climate and community resilience.

Thanks to a £246,000 grant from the City Bridge Trust, in 2021 Capital Growth began a three-year initiative to help protect existing gardens and increase opportunities for nature-friendly food growing across the capital. 

As part of our new focus, we launched the Spotlight Garden programme from September 2021 to November 2022 to shine a light on the increasingly important role community food growing spaces and communities play in tackling the climate and nature emergency and to make the case for their protection.
