Learn about urban food growing and running community gardens with our hands-on sessions in gardens across London, covering six themes:

  •  Climate resilience: Sustainability and growing for the future
  •  Grow for nature: Improving biodiversity, habitat creation and growing organically
  •  Growing Connections: Growing for health, wellbeing and community
  •  Growing Culture: Focus on London's food growing heritage
  •  Growing enterprise: Focus on enterprising ideas and selling produce
  •  Get children growing: Engage children and young people outdoors

Upcoming training

Covid 19 - Following the latest advice from the government on social distancing and the risk to the UK having been raised to high, Sustain are cancelling all training and events until the end of April 2020. We hope to run the training that we had scheduled between March and May later in the year, but will keep this page updated as we learn more.

Hope to see you all at a training session or garden again soon. 

Take care, from us all at Capital Growth x
