Community Harvest

Community Harvest, Adam Rock, Resurgence
City dwellers in London unite to grow their own food. Urban agriculture projects like these are a small but growing phenomena that reduce London's ecological damage. London educator Adam Rock describes the benefits of community-grown food in the British eco-friendly magazine Resurgence. 'The fresh food they get comes with barely any food miles, no packaging and no waste (assuming that the scraps are recycled as compost back at the site). As a sustainable food culture it can hardly be beaten and it is happening in the midst of the inner city.' The environmental group SUSTAIN is trying to bring together a number of these different projects under the flag of East London Food Futures to create a local food network.
