London Grown is a not-for-proft workers’ co-operative that’s building a co-operatively run ecological community food hub in London – increasing local access to fresh, healthy and affordable food and community space. It’s committed to the values of regenerative agriculture; aiming to restore derelict land. It operates over two sites in London: Pasteur Gardens (PG) and the Wolves Lane Centre (WL), collaborating with local groups in an area of significant social deprivation, to transform these previously derelict sites into productive community spaces.
It gained access to PG in April 2016 and has: made it accessible to the public; dedicated two acres to food production; installed essential infrastructure and an accessible education hub. It recently won a 25-year lease to develop the WL site into a community food hub.
