Help Abundance Pot Trees This Weekend
Volunteers needed to help with Edible High Road project
Abundance London needs help this weekend potting up its trees for the Edible High Road project. Volunteers are needed at 11am on Saturday, February 25th at Cultivate London in Brentford where the trees are being stored.
The Edible High Road project takes place in Chiswick later this year to celebrate the first Chelsea Fringe, to coincide with the Chelsea Flower Show. The group is planning to create a river of fruit trees in big pots along Chiswick High Road, Devonshire Road, Turnham Green Terrace for May/June with the help of local volunteers and businesses.
Cultivate London can be found at East Street, off Commerce Road, Brentford, TW8 8LR. Turn off Brentford High Road by the canal to go behind the Holiday Inn, to find East Street, which looks like a car-park, with Cultivate London’s polytunnels at the bottom.
Volunteers on Saturday are advised to wear old clothes and bring a sandwich and thermos.There is a cafe nearby.
Children are welcome if supervised.
Karen Liebreich of Abundance commented:
“ The trees will be re-planted properly around the neighbourhood after the festival, and will go to school playgrounds, to swell the orchard up in Dukes Meadows or to other suitable locations around Chiswick. “

The Chelsea Fringe is a brand new festival which will be held throughout London over three weeks from 18th May - 10th June at the same time as the Chelsea Flower Show. Chelsea Fringe will complement the renowned show and will be similar in spirit and adventurousness to the Edinburgh Fringe.
