This year Abundance has decided not to organise an Edible High Road, after last year’s very successful Herbal High Road. Having provided a river of fruit trees in 2012 and a swathe of 75 herbal boxes in 2013 up and down the High Road, Devonshire Road and Turnham Green Terrace, we have become even more ambitious.
With the help of architects Adams Collingwood we have drawn up a proposal to improve the underground bridges at Turnham Green tube. We propose a fabulous mural, which everyone would be invited to work on (school sessions, public sessions…) directed by an artist to ensure a great result, and a green wall in the light wells. A maintenance budget would be included to make sure the green walls continue to look fantastic. Transport for London and Hounslow Council have made positive noises so far, and we are awaiting further encouragement… Perhaps for next year’s Chelsea Fringe?
