The Energy Garden team are delivering post-build community gardening sessions at stations which are part of the Energy Garden network.
What is Energy Garden?
The Energy Garden project is a partnership project delivered by Repowering London, Groundwork and Transport for London.
Over the next 2 years the Energy Garden team will be supporting communities across London to transform up to 50 London Overground platforms and stations into thriving gardens that will incorporate food growing plots and solar energy providing on-site renewable energy for lighting, water pumps or other small scale station amenities.
We also have plans to identify a larger solar energy site to secure a long-term income for the gardens.Click here to find out more about Energy Garden's solar programme.
Energy Gardens will promote food and energy security, create resilient communities and improve the health and well-being of Londoners.
Community Gardening sessions:
At these sessions you can learn how to help look after the garden, establish a user group for on-going involvement and meet other people in your community.
One of our community gardeners, Claire, will be delivering three sessions at Rectory Road station. You do not need any gardening skill or experience to get involved, and all equipment will be provided. Refreshments will also be provided at the session.
Dates (all 3-4pm):
Session 1: Thurs 13th April
Session 2: Thurs 4th May
Session 3: Fri 12th May
We look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible!
