A disused railway platform at Kensington Olympia Station has been turned in to a community garden, providing plots for gardeners to grow their own fruit and vegetables.
Network Rail and RB Kensington & Chelsea have worked together to open the garden on an unused platform, which now has 89 individual plots. The Council employs two part-time gardeners who run workshops and offer advice.
Cllr Condon-Simmonds said: “Looking around at the vegetable plots thriving with green beans, tomato plants and herbs to name just a few, it is amazing to think that at the start of the summer this site was an unused platform, home to just nettles and dandelion plants.”
Mike Franklin from Network Rail said: “We are very pleased to be able to work with the Council to create this great community garden and put this unused space to community use.”
