De Beauvoir Gardeners ask community to make pop up gardens for Chelsea Fringe
De Beauvoir Gardeners are kick-starting a community initiative, creating mini-pop up gardens to brighten the borough’s streets to coincide with the Chelsea Fringe.
As well as using builders’ bags as flower containers, they want neighbours to renovate the neglected areas underneath street trees.
The inaugural Chelsea Fringe begins Saturday May 19 and runs for three weeks across London.
The idea is to harness and spread excitement and energy about gardens and gardening.
“We are using Chelsea Fringe 2012 to improve our immediate environment, inspiring everyone to get involved in enhancing our neighbourhood, reminding ourselves that flowers and vegetables can be grown absolutely anywhere and what pleasure they bring. ” said Miranda Janatka.
