**Please note that due to an unexpected supply issue with the containers we have had to reschedule this event to Saturday 25 April 2020 from 10.30/11am.**

We need your help with our big community planting project so please save the date and join in the fun! In 2018 we applied to Hounslow Council for funding to buy some containers for Brentford Market Square, in our continued efforts to #MakeBrentfordGreener. The funding was approved and after consultation we decided to get some containers which will be both attractive and resilient for this public space.

We’ve commissioned a company called IOTA who have made containers for spaces in Hanwell, Kings Cross, amongst other locations, and decided to get four large CorTen containers, a little like the container below in Edinburgh, but not as tall, and one bright yellow container, seen below at City University and Kings College Campus London.

We’ve consulted with local businesses, the Sunday Market and Hounslow Council and have marked up where the containers will be positioned. Brentford Market Square is a flexible space with multiple uses and the positioning of the Sunday Market stalls and access for the stall holders was a big consideration in the final location of the containers. The chalk has washed off in the meantime with heavy rain but will be re-marked again periodically in the run-up to the planting project.

We plan to fill the containers with lots of plants and are asking local residents if they have any spare plants from their garden to donate to the project. If you have any that might be useful could you email us on airqualitybrentford@hotmail.com by 8 March and we’ll see if we can use them.
