NORTH

URBAN HARVEST
An informal online network focused on neglected food resources. Regular foraging and fruit picking events include plum gathering on Tottenham Marshes. 

SOUTH

INCREDIBLE EDIBLE LAMBETH
A loose conglomeration of community growers covering Brockwell Park, Ruskin Park and elsewhere in Lambeth. Plenty of events are listed on the website.

EAST

HACKNEY HARVEST
A collaboration between the London Orchard Project and the Transition network that maps fruit trees in northeast London and arranges collection by volunteers.

WEST

ABUNDANCE LONDON
Cherries, apples, plums and pears are up for grabs (literally) through this harvest group based in Chiswick. Associated groups cover other parts of London.

CITYWIDE

FORAGE LONDON
John Rensten leads informative and entertaining three-hour walks (usually £30 per person) in various London parks, plus mushroom hunting in autumn and seaside trips in summer.
