A workers' cooperative growing food on London's edge in the Lea Valley


OrganicLea is a community food project based in the Lea Valley in north-east London. We produce and distribute food and plants locally, and inspire and support others to do the same. With a workers’ cooperative at our core, we bring people together to take action towards a more just and sustainable society.

Our projects currently receive funding support from The National Heritage Lottery Fund, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, City Bridge Foundation, Mayor of London’s Good Growth Fund, Worshipful Company of Gardeners, G W Cadbury Trust, as well as a number of smaller grants.
