Lizzy Cook

Resources Manager (and Gardener)

Lizzy trained as a secondary school teacher and moved on to work in the fashion industry as a pattern cutter and garment technologist. 

After becoming a mother and having a career break (including sailing for a year with her family), Lizzy became a volunteer with TGC and her involvement with the charity has increased as the charity has grown and once qualified as a RHS Level 2 gardener Lizzy led gardening activity on TGC’s Newington Green greenspaces.

Lizzy has been encouraged and supported by TGC and now manages TGC’s Resources Department which involves sourcing and preparing resources for activities including making educational props and repairing.
