Kilburn Station Planters (active project)


Kilburn Station Planters (active project)

Small group of volunteers looking after the flowers, fruit and veg planted at Kilburn station. No experience needed and all welcome. We mostly weed, tidy, water, chat and sometimes plant. 

Regular gardening sessions on first Sunday every month 11-12 noon - just turn up at the platform planters. Best to join this group to get confirmation as we stick to this schedule 80% of the time.

Tell staff you're gardening (wave to the office or press the information button on the help point) and they'll let you in for free.

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? :)
