Saturday 19 October 2019 Some residents from Eastbourne Road, north of the M4 flyover in Brentford, had asked us if a planting project could be done along the pedestrian alleyway to the A4. Coincidentally we had also been offered some wooden containers from a local garden. Hounslow Highways gave us permission to place these containers along the alleyway, and we boosted the existing plants with some more greenery, and lots of tulip and narcissi bulbs for Spring next year.

Thanks so much to Mark for donating the containers in the first place and to Cultivate London‘s very kind efforts to move them to the location. Huge thanks also to everyone who came out to help with the project on Saturday morning. We’re encouraging the residents of Eastbourne Road and neighbouring roads to water and look after these containers and help #MakeBrentfordGreener.

Our next planting project will be at Brentford Market Square in the next few months/perhaps Springtime – we’re currently deciding which containers to purchase. Do let us know if you’d like to get involved by emailing airqualitybrentford@hotmail.com.

  1. Just wanted to say thank you for the lovely planters you have put in our alleyway, its a fantastic project. I will endeavour to make sure they are watered and looked after. – Eastbourne Road resident
