This weekend saw the opening of the first publicly accessible wetland in Hackney at Woodberry Wetlands, and it was tremendously popular when I went along on Sunday.  Closed to the public since it was built to store water brought along the New River from Hertfordshire it was officially opened by Sir Richard Attenborough on 30th April.…

If you have time to meet outside/ before the next meeting, or maybe after it at the Curve Garden again. That would be good. Thanks again.

Hi James.

This website needs updating.

I'm sure that we can find a volunteer to help.

I'm not sure why 2/6 of The Main Headings on the Google search for Sustainable hackney come up with The Tree Nursery and The Hackney Marshes Groups.

I'm not sure why our Chair - Russell Miller was talking about them both at his speech at the AGM ? How are they relevant to an overview of Sustainability in Hackney? I would like to add this to the Agenda for the next meeting. Thanks. Lucy

Hi James,

I'm still learning about social media, I can come & help with Sustainable Hackney, a little time, on a regular basis. It would be a pleasure.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi James,
Sorry to be so technically challenged, but I've created 12 Events on Face Book for my Kids Summer Programme at The Hackney Tree Nursery & Edible Forest Garden, but am having trouble linking them to Event Brite for ticket sales. 
Do you know any one who can spare a few hours, now & then to help me with such things (paid).
Thanks again.
Lucy T

Noticed that the monthly Steering Group meeting is this week and thought I'd asked Kathryn to confirm my vague recollection that it's open to (presumably silent) attendance by non-members of the group - but no reply. Can I sit in or do you like to discuss things in isolation?

PS Can't ask you in real time because the chat box isn't offering me anything to type into at present...???

Our office is based in Hackney, but the Puppet Barge is moored in Little Venice and travels to Richmond during the summer... Thanks for asking!
