SLOG's Committee Officers
Our officers are:
Chair: Penny Hinsinger
Membership Secretary: Adam Rubinstein.
Adam has been on the SLOG committee for several years. He says:
“I am passionate about gardening, particularly fruit and vegetables. Although growing apples at 750 ft on poor soil does have it’s challenges, I manage to get apples most years. Soft fruit does better, particularly blackcurrants, gooseberries and blueberries. I am also interested in yoga, healthy lifestyles and alternative medicine.”
Adam can be contacted about all membership issues on email@example.com
Treasurer: Adam Walker
