London Harvest Festival

11 September 2021
at Lambourne End Centre

We had a beautiful day for the 23rd annual London Harvest Festival. Over 150 people of all ages came together to celebrate city farming and community gardens. We had goats, guinea pigs, giant pumpkins, mini-gardens, archery, friendly competition, old friends meeting by the campfire, and little helpers handing out rosettes.

“I enjoyed seeing other city farms animals like Darth Vader the black chicken with black skin! I liked spending time with our group and chilling out together.” – Surrey Docks Young Farmer

It was an enormous team effort! Thank you to:
