Capital Growth is London's food-growing network: supporting communities across the capital to grow their own food.

Projects

New Leaf Educational Gardens

We work with all members of the local community to improve the natural environment. It is a place where local people of all ages can come and learn about the plant and insect life on our doorstep in Dulwich and Southwark, based on the simple fact that the more you know about the environment, the more you will care for it. We have constructed the first parts of our evolution garden, showing the development of plants throughout their history. This includes the pond with aquatic plants and three terraces that are yet to be planted. We also have a second hand bookshop, which acts as a community hub.

Tell us what you're growing in Tooting

Each year, people donate locally grown food to Tooting Foodival and local restaurants use that food to create a fabulous feast for everyone for free.  Foodival will take place on 13th and 14th September this year. We're always amazed by the variety of food grown in even the smallest spaces. This year, we want to celebrate growers in and around Tooting.  So we've created a map to show just how many people are growing. From chilli rainforests on rooftops, to kale and strawberries on balconies, to our very own community garden.We'd love you to join in with the map. Add a red marker to your street and tell everyone what you're growing in the marker title. Or let us know on Facebook or Twitter or right here and we can add it for you.If you know a community growing project or a school, shop or office that's growing food, add a green marker and tell us a bit about them.So far, over 30 growers have put themselves on the map!Join in and let's show the world how green Tooting can be.
