Summer 2014 - trial wild flower plots on some verges in Kingston
They looked lovely and proved acceptable, even popular, with the public. Let's hope that the experiment is repeated and extended - the public needs to get used to long grass and wild flowers in places where they cause no problems and could do a lot of good for wildlife.
Tuesday February 19th, 2013, TTK open meeting - on "Guerrillallotments", 6.00- 9.00pm, C-SCAIPE, Kingston University Penrhyn Road campus
Transition Town Kingston monthly open meeting, this February of interest to anyone who'd like to see fruit, vegetables and bee-friendly plants growing in Kingston's neglected public spaces (verges, roundabouts, planters, odd corners of parks...) and in unusual private spaces (front gardens, balconies, rooftops...). A possible opportunity to participate in the River of Flowers project and/or in the Chelsea Fringe festival.
Free though donations towards expenses appreciated. Discussions usually start at around 6.45, with participants gathering for a bit beforehand, bringing food and drink to share.
