FEATURE // Meet some of the Steering Group

Got a question for the Forest Gate Community Garden Steering Group? Wondering who is on the team? Here's a rundown of some of the Steering Group Members, who have been working super hard over many many months to get the garden off the ground. You've probably seen some of us around, often in CoffeE7 recruiting Members or meeting about various issues

The Forest Gate Community Garden Steering Group is made up of a core group of Members. We have all gradually developed a specialism, based on our skills, expertise, knowledge and contacts. This has been invaluable in the process of setting up the garden as there are a surprisingly large and varied number of tasks required to get something like this off the ground. The great news is, we're very nearly there!

We meet fortnightly at 7.30 on a Wednesday for an hour and a half. You would be welcome to come along and see how we work, and decide whether you would like to join us. Just email to express your interest.
