The Guide includes case studies of other growing projects in London, information about retail and wholesale pricing, crop guides, risk assessments and resources on allotment law. It also covers other creative ways in which urban food growing spaces can generate income for their projects, such as through consultancy services, venue hire and skills training.


The Capital Growth campaign, run by Sustain's London Food Link offers practical and financial support to communities around London to help more people grow more food, and to have greater access to land and growing spaces for community benefit. The Capital Bee project, part of Capital Growth, seeks pledges to promote bee-friendly behaviour, and supports establishment of community beehives.
