Croydon welcomes new Master Gardeners


Croydon welcomes new Master Gardeners

Croydon is about to welcome a new “crop” of Master Gardeners.

National Charity Garden Organic is working with Croydon Council as part of the Food Flagship programme, to introduce 20 new food growing mentors to the borough.

The Master Gardeners will be working across Croydon to help and encourage residents to start growing some of their own food. They’ll be offering free advice and support to anyone who wants to give growing a go!

Over the next few months you’ll see these Master Gardeners out and about at events around the borough, raising awareness of the programme.

For more information about becoming a Master Gardener please contact co-ordinator Liza Scholefield here

Councillor Timothy Godfrey, cabinet member for culture, leisure and sport, said: “This is a great opportunity for keen local gardeners to help spread the word of the value of producing fruit and veg for home consumption.

“As part of Croydon’s commitment to the Heart Town project, we’re fully behind the drive to have local people eating wholesome, nutritious food and there’s no surer way of getting that than by growing it yourself.

“There are hundreds of Master Gardeners across the country, all doing their bit to help others, and I’m sure Croydon can add to that number – and help ensure a healthier future for local people.”
