The Edible Bus Stop : Community Gardens from Neglected Sites
The Edible Bus Stop transforms neglected sites across London’s bus network into valuable community growing spaces. Originating as a guerilla garden project adjacent to a bus stop in South London, we transform once-forgotten spaces into thriving neighbourhood hubs that are celebrated by local residents and users of the bus route.
The Edible Bus Stop germinated from the need for green space within our cities and urban communities. We understand that a brutal landscape makes for a brutal outlook. Therefore, we explore high-end aesthetics at lower-end budgets to create garden designs that promote harmonious community growing spaces, demonstrating that good food and good design is not socially exclusive.
Our objective is to create a network of gardens whereby skills and resources are shared via our Edible Bus Stop umbrella organization. We work closely with communities to provide them with the necessary framework to utilise neglected public spaces in a productive fashion while incorporating the principals of design to raise their profile. To ensure the longevity of this project, we seek committed sponsors to take the concept across London and the United Kingdom.
