A revolution in growing fresh food in the city is being celebrated with a festival at
Meanwhile Gardens, alongside the Grand Union Canal in North Kensington on 16

organic, chemical-free vegetables and produce for a spectacular cook-in. Locally

entertainment are on the menu.

growers, cookery skill-sharing clubs and food co-ops in the area.

growing food now for the family on the website and Facebook. There’s also a call
for more volunteers from the community to get involved with the event now –email
