Edible High Road & Herbal High Road for the Chelsea Fringe

Sweet pea and lavender

In 2012 and 2013 Edible High Roads sprang up around London for the Chelsea Fringe, following Chiswick’s example. In Chiswick the Edible High Road featured some 50 fruit trees which later went on to be planted around the area in school playgrounds and community gardens. The following year the Herbal High Road featured 75 little herb gardens outside local shops and left a herbal knot garden as a legacy on Turnham Green.

All over London other Edible High Roads were  inspired by our example and there were street orchards on Salusbury Road NW6, Askew Road W6, Brook Green W6, Lewisham SE23.

A treasure trail guided kids around the area.

 

One thought on “Edible High Road & Herbal High Road for the Chelsea Fringe”

  1. The Edible Herbal High Road will this year be complemented by a traditional willow knot garden with a dramatic modern twist on the main green between Chiswick Town Hall and Christ Church on Turnham Green.
