CFGN runs four seasonal gatherings a year where growers meet to garden together, share skills, have lunch, see different food projects, hear news and discuss ways to act together on relevant issues.

It is also an opportunity to chat to food growers from CFGN member projects and find out more about how the network functions.

CFGN will be making our first visit to Granville Community Kitchen – a project empowering community through food and building an ethical, sustainable, local and culturally diverse food hub, offering food centred activities, services, education and training.  The group recently won Locality’s Community of the Week award.


The plan for the day is:

Noon – 1.30pm: Practical gardening session

An opportunity to work together in the garden, share skills and participate in timely tasks at Granville Community Kitchen.

There will also be a chance to visit the LCNC ‘Old Girl’ straw bale office and garden for those not wanting to work outside.

1.30 – 2.30pm: Lunch + Tour

People are invited to bring food/harvests to share which will contribute to lunch.

There will be a tour of the site and history of how Granville Community Kitchen came to be, where it is now, and plans for the future!

2.30pm – 5pm: News + Discussions


A chance to hear news from community gardens across London, and action ways to support eachothers’ work.

Currently a focus for CFGN is ‘Access to Land’ and finding ways to secure long-term tenureship/ownership for community food projects in London.
