Almost a year ago, TAG members began discussions focussed on the introduction of a roof garden, to be located beneath our Shepard Fairey artwork. Over Cafeteria coffee we began the momentum for a major project; one which would provide a steep learning curve, and with it a good few changes of heart. Yet the core ethos remained intact - to soften the street corner with vegetation and visual embellishment, create a bee-friendly pocket of London, and introduce positive emotions through natural formations.
This August we finished installation.
Community First - without whose funding this urban micro-garden would not have been possible. There is much ongoing maintenance to come; the spring and summer of 2014 a time when the full visual effect is most likely to be realised. Yet already the bees have found us. And the sight of various fronds waving in the cross wind a welcome diversion from brick and concrete.
