What we do

We support people to grow food in London, whether at home, on allotments or as part of a community group.

Capital Growth is London's largest food growing network, with over 2,000 gardens throughout the city. We offer in-kind support to people who grow their own food in London, including providing access to discounted training, networking events, support with growing to sell and discounts on equipment. Joining our network is free and new ideas or offers of support are always most welcome.

Capital Growth is supported by London Food Link, the Mayor of London and City Bridge Trust. It is championed by the Chair of the London Food Board, Rosie Boycott, and supported the creation of 2,012 new community food growing spaces across London by the end of 2012.
