Abundance Bridge Plan For Chiswick
Propose a mural and Green Wall for Turnham Green underground
This year Abundance London 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 Chiswick High Road, Devonshire Road and Turnham Green Terrace for the last two Chelsea Fringe festivals, they have become even more ambitious.
With the help of architects Adams Collingwood Abundance they 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 Abundance are awaiting further encouragement... Perhaps for next year’s Chelsea Fringe?", commented an Abundance spokesperson.
Meanwhile they have guerrilla gardened spring bulbs in the beds along the High Road (just beginning to peep out), planted a rhubarb triangle at the library, a raspberry forest garden patch on the A4 and a few other Chiswick-enhancing initiatives.
