Wen has secured 2 years of funding from the City Bridge Trust for our work on the Tower Hamlets Food Growing Network. This will enable us to support more people to grow their own food through new or existing gardens in the area. Find out more.

what we do

seasonal gatherings

Every season we hold a friendly gathering of the network. Each time we look at a new topic around food growing and the environment, share a delicious hot lunch and go on a tour of local community gardens. It’s a great chance to get to know other food-growing enthusiasts in your area. Everyone is welcome to this free event. Find out about the next Food Gathering here.
