About our project *** Including Map of proposed sites***

Making the streets of Hackney flourish.

De Beauvoir Gardeners is a community group for anyone in and around Hackney who loves plants and has a window-box, a small patch of ground, an allotment or a garden – and now they don’t even need that! We are kick-starting a community gardening initiative to make the streets of Hackney bloom ever more brightly.

We intend to create  pop-up mini-gardens,  using builders’ bags as containers, for the duration of the Fringe (or as long as they can be kept looking attractive by their individual creators and supporters); and, together with teams of neighbours, work to renovate the neglected areas underneath our local street trees and other plantings, with the support of the Council which does not do so.

Local people who live near areas of neglected public planting want to enhance our neighbourhood, changing weedy and litter-strewn eyesores into places of beauty.  We are working together as neighbours to improve our immediate environment and hoping to inspire everyone to get involved.

Colour code of pins- Blue- General areas suggested in need of a person to identify a site and set up a pop up.  Yellow- Sites proposed by members of the community who will be setting up and maintaining the site. Red- Sites suggested in need of a pop looking for a person to set up and maintain.

Organized By: De Beauvoir Gardeners’ Chelsea Fringe committee – Francesca Bartlett, Tigger Cullinan, Miranda Janatka and Diana Weir.
