Kilburn Station Planters (active project)


Kilburn Station Planters (active project)

We're moving plants around at Kilburn tube station to create beds with a theme: herbs, tea; fruit and veg, foraging.

The idea is to make clearer to passers-by what we're doing. If TfL allow, we want to create signs to explain the beds too.

Garden revamp - Sunday April 8th:

We're looking for 5-6 people to lovingly dig up and move plants around, plus plant some new ones we're nurturing. It's any time from 11-1pm on Sun April 8th 2018 (not our usual first Sunday because of Easter).

If you can help please email

Group of volunteers gardening and watering the flowers, fruit and veg planted at Kilburn station. Regular gardening sessions on first Sunday every month 11-12.30 - just turn up on the platform. Tell staff it's to garden and they'll let you up with no need to oyster in.

I met a very nice and interested British Transport Police Officer today. Part of the conversation went like this:

What's this?
Marjoram, try it

It smells like weed!

It does a bit, sweetness...

Ah, how do you know? :)
