The Garden

The Regent's Park Allotment Garden is a demonstration garden managed in partnership between Capital Growth (London's food-growing network), The Royal Parks and Capel Manor College. Its purpose is to inspire, educate and demonstrate the growing of fruit and vegetables in an urban environment. We focus on chemical-free techniques. The Allotment Garden is a wonderful example of a thriving food-growing space in the heart of the capital. The garden hosts Capital Growth food growing training sessions as well as school visits, events and volunteering evenings.
