The Edible Bus Stop is an organisation that aims to turn neglected sites across London’s transport system in to spaces where the local community can grow their own produce.
The initial idea was born from a guerilla gardening project next to a south London bus stop and has since grown to encompass other sites and now pop-up garden installations for events and public festivals. There’s also a new garden planned in West Norwood this year, as well as a project in Crystal Palace.
With a firm belief that our cities could do with a few more green spaces, the objective of the Edible Bus Stop is that by planting edibles and creating urban gardens that can also benefit those who live nearby, they are creating an inclusive way for locals to get involved and contribute to their community.
The design led projects are also playful, add colour and greenery to urban landscapes and they hope to put a smile on your face and inspire people to get planting. It’s certainly put a smile on our face, so it’s obviously working. If you’d like to get involved then you can contact The Edible Bus Stop through their Facebook and Twitter profiles.
