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.
