A popular urban farm has been given a cash boost to help its food growing programme.
Freightliners City Farm, in Sheringham Road, Holloway, has scooped more than £130,000 from Local Food supported by the Big Lottery Fund.
It will use it for its Islington Combined Harvest project to try to produce high quality local produce for people in the area.
The café will host tastings and children will be invited to learn about food production and agriculture.
Liz McAllister, chief executive of the farm, said it would be a fabulous addition to the farm in its 40th year: “It’s a chance for the community to get together to grow, cook and eat local.
