I went along to the Open Garden Squares Weekend in London to find out how people are using vacant urban space and land to grow fruit and vegetables in the Capital. I visited the new Regent's Park allotment garden and spoke to Capital Growth about their recent successes in developing new community food growing spaces in London. I also visited the King's Cross Central Skip Garden, created by sustainability education charity Global Generation, and FARM:shop in Dalston, East London - a derelict inner city terrace which has been transformed into a mini hydroponic and aquaponic farm.
