Join us this May Day to celebrate the launch of this exciting new project and to find out how you or your organisation can get involved.
Over the next 2 years the Energy Garden team will be supporting communities across London to transform London Overground platforms and stations into thriving gardens that will incorporate food growing plots and solar energy providing on-site renewable energy for lighting, water pumps or other small scale station amenities. We also have plans to identify a larger solar energy site to generate a long-term income for the gardens. The gardens will also provide training opportunities and waged horticulture apprenticeships for young people.
From May 1st we’ll be inviting Londoners to tell us which London Overground stations they’d like to see transformed into Energy Gardens.
To nominate your local London Overground station tweet us using #greenmyoverground@GroundworkLON
From the May 1st we'll also be accepting expressions of interest from small groups of local residents, commuters or local business owners who'd like to work with us to transform their local station into an Energy Garden. Visit www.energygarden.org.uk to submit your expressions of interest (from 1st May).
