Hackney Wick Guerilla Gardeners Strike Again!!

With only a few short weeks to go to the Hackney Wick Festival 2009 - our VERY friendly Guerrilla Gardeners have delivered a stunning raised bed for us!

Thank you to everyone involved!!! You have really made this little corner of the Wick beautiful!!

Please - Hackney Wick - go for a lovely stroll over the weekend - and spend a few minutes on the new wide corner of Berkshire Road & Wallis Road. There's a fragrant bay tree surrounded by loads of busy lizzies & pansies!

Sunflower Avenue Through Hackney Wick!!

This summer - we would love to attempt an avenue of sunflowers all the way from the Hackney Wick Community Centre - in the Eastway - through to the footbridge at the end of Wallis Road.

Imaging a beautiful path of yellow all along Osborne, Berkshire & Wallis Roads right over into Viccie Park!?!

Some of the residents of Leabank Square - about half way - have already agreed to plant along the main Berkshire Road part of the avenue. Terry - the manager of the Hackney Wick Community Centre - has lovingly agreed to kick it all off at the Community Centre. And Tom & his lovely family at the Wallis Road end have fantastically agreed to plant some along the tall brick wall.

So - please everyone else!!! Grab a bag of seeds at Lidl, B&Q or the Pound Shop - and start planting all along this avenue! It will bring us all together in such a great path of happy yellow!!

Spring Onions 2009

How's this for some excellent Guerrilla Gardening?!

Some fantastic gardener has planted about 100 sets of spring onions all along the Hackney Wick beginning of the Greenway - just before the Hackney Wick Pill Box Bunker.

Thank you very much for adding such delicious flavour to our picnic on our monthly trip to see how far the Olympic Stadium has come along. These are the milder flavoured spring onions - so the kids tucked in with as much relish as us adults!

Come on Hackney Wick - let's start planting much more food all over The Wick!!
