It's been just under a year since our community consultation at Brondesbury Park station, and thanks to the hard work of local residents, station staff, volunteers and the Green Team, it has become a community garden filled with flowers and vegetables, a solar powered pump, compost bin, and hedge hog hut. You can help out as you pass through by weeding, watering, and putting plant matter into the compost bin to enrich the soil.
Currently, vegetables such as broad beans, tri-colour pak choy, and lettuce are growing in and will soon be ready for harvest. In the past, hops, broccoli, carrots, aubergines, strawberries and raspberries have been grown and harvested here. These were made into quiches, samosas and more, and the hops were even brewed into beer!
Spring flowers are also supporting honey bees and bumble bees, which are under threat in London and play a key role in supporting our food production. We're looking forward to more growth and flowers with warmer weather!
