The East London Garden Society is here to promote urban gardening and to put views forward to protect the environment in which we all live. The Society has come a long way since it was formed in September 2011.

It has acquired expertise in all aspects of gardening, made many friends and has been asked to assist in building gardens as well as teaching gardening to those in East London.

All this has come about as there is a need to promote gardening and provide a more sustainable environment. As an established Society we present gardening to a wide audience so we need others to be involved in whatever way they feel able to assist.

The East London Garden Society continues to encourage walkers to enjoy the beauty of nature within east London by walking the trail named The Great Eastern Parks Route.

Our next walk is on 6 May 2024 (Bank Holiday Monday), from 12.00 hours, commencing at The Bethnal Green Library.

We will learn about the second oldest gardens in London by walking along the end of the soon to be London Highline, through to Meath Gardens. From here we will walk through Victoria Park onto The Greenway and following this to the Channelsea River. We end in West Ham Park.

At West Ham Park we will visit The Newham Green Fair and learn about the 150th birthday this park.

This walk will celebrate the national Park City week in London, bringing together all those who love nature. You will meet others who have a belief that London can be made more desirable if we support the nature we have within its boundaries.

So, join us on the 6 May 2024 and help promote our natural treasures. Remember, walking is good for you. For further information, please email eastlondongardesociety@gmail.com

Your humble hedgerow can save the planet with a bit of help from you.
