Sunday, went to the launch of the Leytonstone Community Garden that will arise on a patch of land beside the tube tracks. Encouraging that not every scrap of land is being built on. Let's hope that something can be created as inspiring as the Abbey Gardens in West Ham.
There was an optimistic and friendly vibe at the launch - the kids were appeased with cake and squash, we were rewarded for filling out questionnaires with strong jute shopping bags (which we then filled up at Tescos - it's a start anyhow).
There's more information about the Church Lane Community Garden on the Transition Leytonstone site
