About The Big Dig Day

We run The Big Dig Day every spring to promote edible gardens and encourage people to volunteer.

This year The Big Dig Day is on Saturday 27 April 2019. If you are a Capital Growth or Big Dig garden then login and sign up, or if not then register your garden now.

During this day, gardens welcome volunteers and visitors, new and old, to explore how to grow food and celebrate the start of spring and the new growing season.

The Big Dig Day started in London in 2012 and over the years more cities and local areas have got involved. From 2019, all gardens can join The Big Dig Day for free alongside hundreds of other gardens and thousands of visitors and volunteers.

If you are running an edible garden or if you would like to take part in The Big Dig Day at a garden near you take action now.
