Getting up close and personal is a reality for commuters in London. People can accept the cramped conditions and lack of air, but no one wants to smell what you had for lunch. In an effort to create a more pleasant journey for all as well as adding to the visual beauty of our city we should create herb gardens for commuters strategically placed close to tube stations.

What we'll deliver:

  • Create mini herb garden
  • Engage volunteers to maintain the gardens
  • Install signs inviting people to pick some herbs

Why it's a great idea:

Healthy and prevents bad breath without leading to additional chewing gum stuck on our streets (and to your shoes).

Steps to get it done:

  • Engage with council to allocate first 3 test herb gardens
  • Buy the plants and equipment and engage local volunteers
  • Create herb gardens
  • Promote to the public
