Training Hubs & Partners

Capital Growth have been delivering food growing training in London since 2009 and in 2016 we formalised our Hub/Partner application process, to co-host training and bring more courses to more people across London.

Covid 19 - Following the latest advice from the government on social distancing Sustain has cancelled all in-person training and events.

We have moved our training programme online for now. We're running a mixture of short and longer workshops. Find out more on the Training page.

We deliver training around 6 broad 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

We are thrilled to announce our fantastic 11 Capital Growth training hubs/partners for 2020.  We received a record number of applications this year, all to such a high standard.  Our selection process considered the unique characteristics of the garden/project, location and facilities, experience of both delivering and hosting training as well as the new and innovative ideas for training proposed. The chosen hubs will be delivering or hosting training sessions throughout the year, and taking part in our open days Good to Grow day in April, and Urban Harvest in September.
