The Big Dig

Saturday, 17th March 2012

The Big Dig is a volunteering event that aims to encourage Londoners to get their hands dirty at their local community growing space.

Capital Growth is hoping to mobilise thousands of volunteers across London to help community food-growing spaces prepare for the new growing season. Volunteers will only be required to help for one day but we hope some will choose to stay involved throughout the growing season.

I'd like to volunteer for a Capital Growth space. How do I register?

Click on the link below to find a list of the participating spaces near you and register for the one you'd like to help on the day.


All registered volunteers will automatically be entered in to a prize draw to win one of selection of prizes including:

  • a meal for two at The Table cafe, Southwark
