Partnership with Capital Growth

We are working with this London-wide organisation, seeking community gardens to grow surplus veg to share with people in your neighbourhood who would really benefit from some extra food this year.

As with our Growing for our Communities project, many of us have recognised there is a pressing need for more locally grown nutritious food this year and Capital Growth are also trying to help that happen.

Perhaps you have a spare plot of land which you could put to good use for the next three months? If you are growing in a communal space or with a group of people, Capital Growth can provide resources (compost, seedlings, tools) and some 1-2-1 advice and training, if you can commit to grow surplus veg.

IEL is acting as a ‘local lead’; our job will be to link up your produce with the people who would like to benefit from some fresh veg.

Get in touch TODAY if you’re interested in being involved. The first round of gardens need to have expressed an interest by Wednesday 10th June, so let us know as soon as possible.
