Become a Local Leader with London 2012
Garden Organic is inviting our networks of volunteer Master Gardeners and Master Composters to become ‘Local Leaders' for the Games.
As the UK's leading organic growing charity, we use innovation and inspiration to get more people growing in the most sustainable way.
We're engaging 1,000 of our local 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.
Master Gardener project manager, Philip Turvil, has signed up as a Local Leader: "I'm excited by communities growing and sharing their tasty veg to celebrate the Games. From snug windowsills to shared gardens and allotments, there's a space for London 2012 coloured veg to harvest for family events and communal feasts."
