City Harvest Festival
09/08/2007

The City Harvest Festival is celebrating the work of London’s city farms and gardens, at Capel Manor College, Enfield on Saturday 22nd September 2007.  The theme of this year’s event will be Growing Food in the City, and TV chef Oliver Rowe is opening the Festival. 

Now in its eighth year, the show is organised by the Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens (FCFCG) [link to http://www.farmgarden.org.uk/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=88.  This year the event will be co hosted by London Food Link, and will tie in with the launch of government’s Year of Food and Farming {link to http://www.yearoffoodandfarming.org.uk/}.  Some of the activities at this year’s show include:

We will have additional marquees providing “green” catering, and cookery demonstrations where food that has been grown in London’s farms and gardens will be turned into tasty treats!

If you are interested in entering the “Container of food plants” competition download the entry form and notes as a 41kb PDF.

Parking is available at Capel Manor.  For the map see www.capel.ac.uk/Gardens/city_harvest_festival.html
For those bringing containers by public transport, there will be a minibus shuttling people to the site from Turkey Street station and back.  Please contact Ben Reynolds to find out more about times.  Turkey Street trains take 30 – 40 mins from Liverpool Street.
