Innovative urban farm and social enterprise based across multiple derelict sites in West London. We train unemployed young people in horticulture, and produce a range of edible and ornamental plants for sale.

Cultivate London has three main objectives:

  1. To generate training opportunities and jobs for unemployed young people aged 16-24 in practical horticulture
  2. To convert derelict and vacant land across London into productive food growing space
  3. To increase the amount of local and organically grown produce consumed by Londoners

Cultivate London
We aim to have a long term impact on the lives of young people and change the way Londoners think about their fresh produce and where it comes from. In recognition of our efforts, we recently received the Observer Food Monthly’s “Producer of the Year” award, and feature in a number of documentaries on urban farming, including the film “Best Before: the London Food Revolution” and book “Farming in the City”.

Cultivate London was started in 2010 by Charity Housing Pathways Trust, who continue to support us.
