Garden for the games: become a local leaderPosted Thursday 15th March 2012
Garden Organic is inviting its network of volunteer Master Gardeners and Master Composters to become ‘Local Leaders’ for the Olympic Games.
We’re asking our 1,000 local gardening and composting champions to celebrate the Games with their community. Some of our volunteers mentor a street’s worth of neighbours, while others transform landscapes in schools, shared gardens and housing estates, so they are the perfect people to drum up support and enthuse others.
Master Gardener project manager, Philip Turvil, has signed up as a Local Leader and said, “I’m excited by the idea of communities growing and sharing their tasty veg to celebrate the Games. From snug windowsills to shared gardens and allotments, there’s a space to grow London 2012 coloured veg to harvest for family events and communal feasts.”
For all of the information you need on how you can become a Local Leader and get involved visit the Master Gardener website.
