Nominees and fans hurried to Twitter to tweet their excitement about the nominations:

The day celebrates British foods and those who grow and supply the produce, with contestants and entries from all-around the United Kingdom.

Presenter of BBC Radio 4’s The Food Programme, Sheila Dillon, reported that ‘[…] I’ve never before felt so strongly that food and farming are changing the UK.’

A number of broadcasters have gathered to highlight these awards which demonstrates the importance of urban farming in 2015.

Despite not being a tremendously farming capital, many Londoner’s have jumped on the Urban Farming bandwagon to promote the importance of eating and growing your own food.
