The Energy Garden is coming to railway stations across London, and next week it is pulling in to the platforms at West Croydon.

energy-gardenOver the next two years the Energy Garden team will be supporting communities across London to transform up to 50 London Overground platforms and stations into thriving gardens that will incorporate food growing plots and solar energy providing on-site renewable energy for lighting, water pumps or other small-scale station amenities.

They also have plans to identify a larger solar energy site to secure a long-term income for the gardens.Click here to find out more about Energy Garden’s solar programme

Energy Gardens will promote food and energy security, create resilient communities and improve the health and well-being of Londoners.

The Energy Garden is a partnership project delivered by Repowering London, Groundwork and Transport for London.

Energy Gardens incorporate food growing plots and on-site renewable energy. Next Friday, September 23, the Energy Garden team will be at West Croydon Station between 5pm and 7pm to answer questions and listen to ideas.

They invite Croydon commuters to come along to find out more about this project, or click here for more.
