our partners

The Orchard Project is doing wonderful work to plant and maintain orchards across the UK. Jo Homan works for them part time, so inevitably there's some collaboration going on there.

Russell Miller runs the Tree Musketeers and is involved in Hackney Community Tree Nursery - responsible for many of North London's fruit tree plantings.

Haringey Council also allow us to use their space in Finsbury Park and we are negotiating with them about our ongoing role in the park.

Gemma Harris of Urban Harvest provides expertise and pioneering ideas in forest garden planting and cooking.

The Castle Climbing Centre has been a wonderful venue for some of our training.

In the past we have worked closely with the other delivery partners of Manor House PACT, a consortium that gained lottery funding for the Manor House area from 2013-2016. This funding allowed us to offer lots of training, some of it accredited, at ELL, completely ramping up what we had to offer. The lead partner was Manor House Development Trust. There were several other delivery partners, including Green and Castle, the London Wildlife Trust and Groundworks. Strategic partners were Genesis Housing, Berkeley Homes and London Boroughs of Hackney and Haringey.

Wheelytots provides us with occasional wheels when we need to transport heavier items around.

LEAP and their micro anaerobic digestion unit, has helped provide plant digestate which we use to build soil fertility. We are also given lots of wood chips and logs by local tree surgeons, such as Custom Cutters , and local people give us their old plant pots.
