This event brought together experiences between networks, growers and urban farmers from London, Toronto, and New York City to show how gardens and farms are contributing toward their cities’ resilience, food security, and Covid-19 response.

Organised by Capital Growth (part of Sustain) in London, NYC Parks GreenThumb in New York, and Toronto Urban Growers, this webinar shared lessons from across the pond on how community gardens and urban farms can respond to crisis, build solidarity among neighbours and prepare for the road ahead.
