Greenwich Park will host its inaugural harvest festival on 13 September, 11am-4pm, in The Queen's Orchard in the north-eastern corner of the park. The orchard, previously a wildlife garden managed by Greenwich Council, was returned to The Royal Parks in 2013 and has been restored to a food-growing area with the help of the Friends of Greenwich Park.
Kensington Gardens' Harvest Festival will be held on 6 September between 11am-4pm, with bee demonstrations, children's activities and the opportunity to join in digging potatoes.
The third and final harvest festival will be held in The Regent's Park Allotment Garden on 19 September, between 11am -5pm. A chef will be making free mini pizzas using fresh produce from the allotment and visitors can wash it down with homemade rhubarb and ginger squash. Children can make a paper pot and plant a seed in it, embark on a garden hunt, and learn how to identify different types of ladybirds.
On all three days experts from The Royal Parks Guild will be on hand to answer any questions about food growing.
