The Urban Harvest

On Saturday 16 September, community food growing gardens across the capital will take part in The Urban Harvest, a day to give Londoners a taste of all the fresh and delicious food grown in the city.

From harvest feasts to hands-on workshops, an annual vegetable show to volunteering, there is a wide range of ways to celebrate in London’s edible gardens and enjoy the city’s harvest.  With an interactive map of gardens taking part across the city, it’s easy to find out what’s happening in any neighbourhood.

Sign up your garden to take part

It’s free for any Capital Growth garden to take part in The Urban Harvest. We welcome school and community spaces to join the festivities by offering volunteer activities, workshops, tours, talks, community meals or anything else that you feel inspired to put on!

To inspire and encourage gardens, we’re offering up to £50 match funding for garden products you sell during The Urban Harvest on 16 Sept. Fresh fruit and vegetables, salad bags, herb bundles, garden preserves, prepared foods with harvested produce – The Urban Harvest can be a great opportunity to raise some funds for your garden! Read more about the match fund and download an application to apply.
