London’s Edible Bus Stops
Last spring, a small group of locals mobilized to reclaim an urban patch along the number 322 bus route in Lambeth, South London. They did a little guerilla gardening and were eventually able to establish a permanent garden, dubbed the Edible Bus Stop. Over the last year, the group has branched out to a second bus stop site, and they’re in the planning stages for three others. It would be great to see them sprout down the entire #322 bus route, and maybe to the rest of London. The Edible Bus Stop have issued a design competition brief to students at Kingston University in London to develop ideas for other underused spaces at or near the 20 stops along the line. The shortlisted finalists will be put on display as part of the Chelsea Fringe Festival later this month.
