Anyone who has ever dreamed of growing your own organic produce should take a tour of our Allotment Gardens located on the west side of London Heritage Farm. You will be amazed to see the creativity and hard works of our Allotment Gardeners and a lot of organic produce that are now growing there.
If you are coming with your family to join the London Family Farm Day 2015 on Sunday August 16, you will have the chance to bring home some organic produce fresh from our Allotment Gardens. A number of our Allotment Gardeners have pledged to donate some of their harvest for the Produce Sale on that day. Supply will be very limited and so find them early before they are sold out. Our Allotment Gardeners will also be happy to share with you their farming knowledge and experience.
