A COMMUNITY gardening group based in the borough has been shortlisted in Boris Johnson's Team London awards.
Hammersmith Community Gardens Association was picked from hundreds of nominations in the awards, organised by the mayor of London's office to recognise the work of volunteers across the capital.
The association, which manages two garden sites in Shepherd's Bush and Brook Green, community greenhouses in Ravenscourt Park and Phoenix School Farm in White City, was nominated in the 'cleaning and greening London' category.
Strategic manager Cathy Maund said: “We are really pleased, especially because we are a small organisation and presumably were up against much larger groups.
“We really value our volunteers and wouldn't exist without them.
“It's really nice to get some recognition.”
As well as caring for its green spaces, the association runs family play schemes, gardening clubs and corporate volunteer days.
Announcing the shortlist of nominees, mayor Boris Johnson said: “It is evident that Londoners have huge hearts and have done a great deal for our fabulous city by giving up their time and skills to help others.”
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at City Hall on March 1.
