Urban Growing - Feeding London in a food-pocalypse

 

Let's set the scene. It's the year 2050 and there's been an outbreak of a terrible virus which has turned the whole crop population of the UK into inedible mutant flowers, except in London. The city has barred the doors, locked itself in and it's safe, for the moment.

But this is serious stuff. Every day London imports food from outside the city limits. Fruit and veg; grains; meats and more. What do we do when this supply stops? 

In conjunction with Sustain's 'Urban Food Fortnight' join The Sustainable Food Story who will take you on a journey to explore London's urban growing scene in all it's glory. 

Herbs from skips, fruit from roofs, veg from underground, honey from community gardens and eggs from a back-yard. There are so many hidden growing communities in London, and it's our job to bring them to dinner.

Can we feed london in a food-pocalypse? Lets find out...
