Meet our team
The Capital Growth team.
After a decade of working with diverse food communities in Spain and Portugal, Mayya returned to London to join Sustain in May 2021. Whether it's challenging local chefs to showcase what sustainable food can taste like or connecting peri-urban organic farmers with inner-city consumers, she's putting community gardens at the centre of all good food conversations to inspire positive behaviour change throughout the food chain.
Sarah Williams joined the team in November 2009. Previous roles have included support and development of various community groups and projects in London, particularly at Groundwork East London where she was involved in environmental regeneration projects.
Most recently Sarah was the Strategic Manager of a Food Access Partnership, where she coordinated implemented a Food and Nutrition Strategic Plan, influencing local decision-making, developing food projects and setting up local networks.
Sarah has a Masters in Leadership for Sustainable Development, achieved through the Forum for the Future’s Masters Programme. She is also an unpaid director at Food from the Sky, an innovative food-growing project on the roof of a supermarket in Crouch End.
