Western Road Urban Garden
Our exciting plan is to involve residents and groups in creating the Western Road Urban Garden in Southall Green.
We will work with socially isolated Black Minority Ethnic residents, young people and vulnerable older adults to create an accessible community green space in an area that most local people are completely unaware of.
The Western Road Allotments are connected with nearby World War 2 bunkers but have fallen into neglect in the past few decades. The site is currently overgrown with weeds and bushes and has become a hotspot for drug users and antisocial behaviour. The site covers 2600 sq metres and we will work with Ealing Council and Southall Transition to clean up the site and create a multipurpose community garden that will provide food, horticulture, leisure and community interaction.
As well as creating a future community orchard we hope that the site will have storage facilities, an eco-toilet, poly tunnels and act as a volunteering hub for this most deprived area.
