Link to web site

What's the big idea?

"We want to help Londoners transform the capital by creating 2,012 new food growing spaces by the end of 2012.

"Capital Growth is a partnership initiative between London Food Link, the Mayor of London Boris Johnson, and the Big Lottery's Local Food Fund. It is championed by the Chair of the London Food Board Rosie Boycott, and aims to create 2012 new community food-growing spaces across London by the end of 2012.

"Capital Growth offers practical help, grants, training, and support to groups wanting to establish community food growing projects, as well as advice to landowners."

The Big Dig
Friday 16 and Saturday 17 March
"The Big Dig is a volunteering event that aims to encourage Londoners to get their hands dirty at their local community growing space.

"Capital Growth is hoping to mobilise thousands of volunteers across London, to help community food-growing spaces prepare for the new growing season.  Volunteers will only be required to help for one day, but we hope some will choose to stay involved throughout the growing season."
