Thursday 13 June 2019 It’s been a couple of years now since we noticed the empty brick planters outside Watermans Court on Brentford High Street, opposite the Premier Inn. We set out to obtain permission and funding to green-up these containers and finally, on a very rainy morning, the project has been completed!
Special thanks to the wonderful Capel Manor College who collaborated with us to make this community planting project happen. Each student designed a container themselves, bought the plants, prepared the containers last week, and then planted them up.
Thanks also to Inspire Hounslow, Tea Pigs, Thorgills and Co-op Housing and Hounslow Council Small Grant for funding the purchase of the plants and compost, we couldn’t have done it without your support.
We hope that the new plants will thrive in their new home and bring colour and variety to this section of our High Street. This is part of Air Quality Brentford’s campaign to #MakeBrentfordGreener. We are planning more planting projects at Netley Road on the Haverfield Estate and at Brentford Market Square later this summer.
