Our work in London

To find out the latest opportunities in London please sign up to receive our London Bulletin.

SF&G run ‘Londoners Natural Future’ a bespoke training, support and networking programme for staff, volunteers and trustees of city farms and community gardens. The focus is on how to run great organisations and projects (rather than teaching hands-on farming and gardening skills.) Training is delivered by members with lots of support from SF&G staff. Funded by Kusuma Trust UK, the programme is excellent value and high quality. It brings us together, showcases and develops our skills, and raises our collective voice.

We also offer free training for individuals and nature-based organisations near to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. This is funded by London Legacy Development Corporation and complements our work with Populo Living and residents of Carpenters Estate to develop new community garden spaces where people can connect with London’s nature.
