Consultation at Kensington Olympia

We had a great consultation at Kensington Olympia last week, with lots of interest in fruit trees and herb gardens, as well as perennial (all-season) plants. There were lots of members of the community in attendance and it's a real honour to be able to contribute to the great work being done by the The  Olympia Garden just next to the platform. 

Successful West Croydon Consultation!

 

We had a fantastic consultation last week at West Croydon station, with about 25 people in attendance over the course of the evening. Lots of people were especially excited by the prospect of herb gardens, as well as hanging baskets, rainwater harvesting and solar pump distribution to plants. We also had a great discussion about the possibility of a vertical herbal garden wall which would be a really groundbreaking addition and potentially something we could recreate across the Overground. We now need to investigate the practicalities of this in terms of sunlight. Station Manager Calistar was a helpful voice in the discussion and we look forward to delivering this garden soon!
