CHISWICK will become a herb paradise when a local community project celebrates the Chelsea Fringe with a range of exciting activities.
Abundance London has worked with the entire Chiswick community to turn the area into a herb haven until June 9 to celebrate the second Chelsea Fringe, a London wide gardening festival.
Around 60 little herb gardens will pop up along Chiswick High Road, Turnham green Terrace and Devonshire Road and there will also be a herbal knot garden with a living willow structure on Turnham Green in front of the Town Hall.
The initiative was launched on Saturday (18) with free workshops all day at Union Jacks, Devonshire Road and Turnham Green.
These included learning how to make your own herbal bread, learning about herbal medicine, creating seedballs, a willow weaving workshop, gin gardening, a fancy dress competition and a treasure trail.
Abundance, a not-for-profit community project, has worked with a large range of people from Chiswick, including shops, restaurants, residents' associations and churches, schools, a youth offender group, a nursing home, garden centres and artists.
