Hoopla Garden

A garden under construction

West Norwood is getting a garden  as part of the edible bus stop project on the route from Clapham Common to Crystal Palace  – see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9C51FZ3zW6w

The Hoopla garden is being constructed in the pavement of Norwood Road, between Lancaster Avenue and Elmcourt Road . The design, drawn up in three community consultation events,  uses the existing bollards, with concrete rings over them, like a game of hoopla and  permeable paving strips  laid diagonally.

Volunteers will be needed to help plant the garden at the end of May with a grand opening in early June. And throughout 2014, regular gardening afternoons 1pm-4pm will be held on the first Sunday of every month – on West Norwood Feast days.

Edible Bus Stop is a volunteer led project working with local communities taking on neglected or forgotten sites to transform them into valuable neighbourhood growing spaces.
