The London Harvest Festival has been going strong since 1999 when it was founded as the City Harvest Festival, hosted by Capel Manor College in Enfield.
The Festival includes an animal competition, a horticulture show, “Have-A-Go” with traditional crafts, and the annual tug-of-war. In 2020 we added a photography and digital competition.
The Animal show includes categories for the animals (best sheep, best guinea pig etc.) as well as competition amongst the young handlers. This is the time for our Young Farmers to show off what they have learned while volunteering at their local city farm.
The Horticulture tent highlights produce, botanicals as well as the important environmental education work of City Farms and Community Gardens.
Congratulations to Lambourne End for winning the Animal shield and Mudlarks for winning the horticulture plate.
Due to avian flu we had to make do without birds.
