Hidden in the back-streets and back-alleys of neglected estates, on railway sidings and in disused corners of the city, seemingly unnoticed by the hustle and bustle of the rat race, is a network of precious green space.
There are 16 city farms in London and hundreds of community gardens and growing sites. Almost without exception they are independent charities, started by volunteers and treasured by their local communities.
If you feel inspired to visit, support or donate to London's city farms and community gardens, find out more at http://www.farmgarden.org.uk/london or go to http://www.farmgarden.org.uk/map to find your nearest community growing space. ?
