We try to improve the local environment by greening up spaces and promoting sustainable practices in face of increasing pollution levels and urban neglect.
Our principles are based on avoiding the depletion of natural resources and over-consumption by sourcing locally and sharing where possible.
By engaging with local residents, schools, businesses and groups we hope to create closer bonds for everyone living and/or working in Kentish Town and surrounding areas.
It takes huge amounts of water and energy to produce food, so we are teaming up with local branches of stores to help reduce food waste. A large amount of food is thrown away each day, a high proportion of which can be eaten, or used productively.
We aim to develop an energy system which serves the needs of the present without compromising the future. We do this by promoting and helping to fund renewable energy sources, such as solar panels and energy efficient methods and devices where possible.
We create opportunities for local residents including children to learn through gardening, engaging their natural curiosity by providing inspiring projects, community know-how and resources. It not only develops community bonds, but also greens up the local environment.

Vegbox is a community-led organic vegetable box scheme with a weekly selection of fresh seasonal produce, sourced as locally as possible. It was founded by members of Transition Kentish Town, with support from Growing Communities in Hackney.
Fantastic! The platform 1 gardens are an inspiration to the workers and travellers using Kentish Town station.
