Come and join our Maida Hill Gardening Action Group (GAG)
We're a small group of locals who enjoy planting around street trees and rejuvenating gardens and public spaces that need help (like the Flamboyan garden, Fernhead Rd; and St Peter's Church, Elgin Ave). We organised the planters in Maida Hill Market Place - one has a bay tree that we collected from someone offering it on Freecycle!
We'd like to see more planters with flowers along the Harrow Rd and other streets in Maida Hill, as well as more planting around street trees.
We have also worked with Westminster Council's Tree Dept, and Westminster Tree Trust, to site more trees around Maida Hill.
We are proud to have just been awarded a grant from the Genesis Community Fund, to transform the front and side gardens of the Assisted Living flats at 60 Great Western Rd/Hormead Rd. It's been a bit of a dismal sight as you walk along Great Western Rd from the canal bridge to Harrow Rd (and vice versa). We've started work - tidying the beds and planting some nasturtiums and other flowers for colour, while we work out a design.
We would love some more people to join us. You don't need to know anything about gardening! And if you fancy planting around a street tree near you, we're happy to help.
We would also love it if anyone could help water the trees and flowers in the market planters, there's a hose that can be used.
