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 are launched the Spotlight Garden programme in September 2021 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.

If you’re interested in having your growing space featured as a Spotlight Garden, please contact mayya@sustainweb.org.
