Brentford Station in bloom

Brentford station summer18.jpgSummer 2018 The planting project around Brentford Station looks blooming marvellous, even if we do say so ourselves.

Seed scattering beside The Kings Arms plus container planting beside Orchard Road garages

seeds and garage containers.jpgSunday 29 March 2018 A chilly day for wild flower seed scattering on the ‘Christmas tree area’ of the grassy slope beside Brentford Station. Many thanks to everyone who donated seeds, £, time and effort to help weed the area and scatter poppy, cornflower and meadow flower seeds. We also gained permission from Hounslow Highways to place the two remaining wooden containers from Syon House beside the garages on Orchard Road. We are liaising with Hounslow Homes to see if we can plant some trees in the gated areas behind these as well in an effort to add green infrastructure to the area.

For anyone who is interested, we have a bank account and any donations will be used to fund our future community planting projects.
