"...you know, you should just park a trailer on the street and grow vegetables in it... *pause* ...hang on that's a great idea!"
Is how it all started. Fast forward through a whirlwind 2 weeks involving: an FOI request, a puzzled man delivering a broken trailer, a big lumber order and a literal ton of soil, the trailer garden was born and ready for the first seedlings.
We were worried about car owners having spaces taken up, but no one had a problem and many worried the plants would be stolen.
We wanted it to be legally parked, but traffic wardens scratched their heads and Lambeth refused to let us buy a parking permit.
So we applied for a gardening award, and won an innovation prize!
