- 2015 Dream Fund Winner
- Awarded £750,000
Groundwork London and Repowering London's Energy Gardens partnership aims to turn 50 London Overground Rail Operations railway stations into greener spaces – providing sustainable volunteering and training opportunities to grow edible produce and transform under-utilised public spaces.
The project will offer local groups and individuals the ability to create their Energy Garden at a local station, of which five will be flagships. Each garden will be powered by solar energy installations and support will be provided to local groups to design the gardens, run planting sessions and maintain them for the long-term.
The project is now accepting expressions of interest from groups of local residents, commuters or local business owners who’d like to transform their local London Overground station into an Energy Garden. Please go to www.energygarden.org.uk to make your nomination.
