Kensington and Chelsea Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The scheme is currently focussing on some unwanted TFL beds around Holland Park Roundabout, creating designs for wild gardens and benches.

What we'll deliver:

  • Plant up the existing beds, fit new benches and bins to the area.

Why it's a great idea:

We feel that a grass roots movement can drive change forward in this area, and subsequently we have seen an opportunity to get young people involved. Supported by the Norland Conservation Society, and Royal Crescent Gardens, we hope the project will encourage the local community to use guerrilla gardening as a catalyst for change.

Local schools and the Henry Woods Community Centre have been invited to become a part of this vision, and have shown an interest in getting involved. This is with the view to giving young people an opportunity to help transform the area and benefit the local community.

As the instigator of this project, and taking inspiration from similar such initiatives in London, we are keen to take the first step towards encouraging further investment into the landscaping of the area, demonstrating the potential for long term improvements to be made.

Steps to get it done:

  • Spreading the word through the magic of Twitter
