Sustain is a powerful alliance bringing together around 100 organisations nationally – and hundreds more at local and regional level. We believe everyone should have access to healthy and sustainably produced food that protects people, animals and planet. Working together, we run highly effective and creative campaigns, advocacy, networks and demonstration projects, aiming to catalyse permanent changes in policy and practice, and to help equip more people and communities with skills as change-makers.
About Capital Growth
Capital Growth is London’s Food Growing network and has been supporting people and groups to grow food in London since 2008. The project works to give everyone the opportunity to grow food as part of a healthy, resilient food system and we are working with our network of growers in London to make this happen.
In 2010, in partnership with The Royal Parks, we launched The Regent’s Park Allotment Garden project to showcase organic food growing, working with a small team of volunteers. During this time, we have delivered a high-profile programme of training at the park, reaching thousands of food growers alongside open days, harvest festivals and school workshops, reaching around 400 pupils each year, as well as other targeted activities. In 2019 we also began supporting the Allotment located in Kensington Gardens.

They will also be involved in an element of planning the programme of activities for the coming year, events and training within the Allotment Garden.
