The LGN Committee is a group of unpaid volunteers, all of whom work or have worked for many years in the London area. With the expansion of our network, we now meet regularly to discuss ways of serving the needs of gardeners working throughout the country.

Our committee have all benefited from others in the gardening community who’ve shared their time, knowledge and skills. We value this practice and are keen to continue this tradition through our seminars and by engaging with our UK wide community via social media.
