We will be creating a mile-long nectar garden along the same three streets – Chiswick’s central shopping area. Fragrant herbs and edible climbing plants will help create a nectar-rich environment that should again put a smile on Chiswick’s face. (I know – hard to imagine it now when all is cold and grey!)
So far some fifty businesses have signed up for their own herbal garden. The project brings together local groups from all walks of life – from local schools, churches, charities, reparations projects, local garden centres, and of course the businesses on our local high streets who need all the support they can get these days. This year, copying Chiswick’s lead, several other Edible High Roads are taking off. There will be new orchard roads in NW6, SE23, two in W6, and maybe more…
IF YOUR BUSINESS, RESTAURANT OR SHOP IS NOT YET INVOLVED, please get in touch. Karen@abundancelondon.com
