Community food growing

Are you interested in growing your own food? Have you found an area to grow it but not sure how to get started? Do you want to get started but don’t have any land?

Follow our easy guide to help you get your project off the ground:

Do I need permission and access?

If you have identified a site and would like help finding out who owns it and whether you can use it, please get in touch with the sustainability team providing a detailed description of the site and its postcode.

Need funding?

If you would like to find out about funding opportunities, see our food growing grants page.

Capital Growth

Camden has signed up to support an urban food growing campaign and as part of this we are raising awareness about Capital Growth to the people that are interested in food growing.  

One of the aims of the project is also to encourage people who are interested in allotments or who are on long allotment waiting lists to start their own food-growing projects on unused land, or to get involved with community spaces that already exist. 

There are currently 105 Capital Growth spaces in Camden, 35 of which require more volunteers.  This represents a great opportunity for people to get involved in food growing whilst waiting for their allotment space. 

For further information about the growing spaces local to you please visit the Capital Growth website
