Urban gardening taken to a new level.

I’ve just returned from the Paralympics and I slept on the floor of someone I was in the CU with 30 years ago who lives in a mixed part of London. He’s organised the people in his flat to grow food. Everyone has a small patch of land behind the flats. These existed and were used to grow food (and other things), but had become run down. The images below show one growers ability to squeeze the maximum amount of food production out of the minimum amount of area. The fence has melons growing on it (an act of genius). This is true transition stuff and the project has now expanded to flats on the same estate round the corner. The plastic containers are being used to collect rainwater.
