Underground, overground, gardening free

2pm-3:30pm, Sunday 13th November

The Urban Gardening Group are working on an exciting new site at Kentish Town underground/overground station. We’re preparing the ground for the spring at the moment: lots of digging and clearing to do!

Come along for our 2pm meet up this Sunday. If you’ve got a garden fork, please bring it too. Just come into Kentish Town underground and ask one of the staff to lead you to the urban gardening site and they’ll bring you to a special secret door in the station. Or just wave your garden fork at them and they’ll know what you’re there for!
