The London Association has sent an open letter to funders and government, together with a support letter from Mark Lane, Gardeners World presenter. The letters call for guidance and support from government, and for funders to continue to support the vital work of the sector. They also highlight how important the services delivered by our members will be in the aftermath.

Our work in London
SF&G run a bespoke training, support and networking programme for staff volunteers and trustees of city farms and community gardens in London. The training and support on offer is designed around what people need, and is delivered by London's farmer and gardeners. Together we focus on how to run great organisations and projects (rather than teaching hands-on farming and gardening skills.) Funded by City Bridge Trust, the programme is excellent value and high quality. To hear more or to offer your own expertise please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
