Transition Town Faversham

From oil dependence to local resilience

Gardening in Faversham’s Public Spaces

Since 2005, the Group has been involved in a number of Gardening in Faversham’s Public Spaces Projects (also known as Guerilla Gardening, shhh!).

Currently, members of the Group, alongside the local residents, garden in the Faversham War Memorial Garden on Stone Street. Gardening usually takes place on Sunday mornings at 10am. Please feel free to join in!

The Circular Flowerbed outside the Library has also been adopted by the Group. It was dug over and planted up during April and May. There is a wide variety of herbs in the bed including Angelica, Rosemary, Chives, Parsley, Thyme, Oregano, Rocket, Agastache, Borage, Basil, Rocket, Chamomile and also Violas, Strawberries and Marigolds. They need to establish themselves before being picked, so give them a chance! Though it looks grand now it will need maintenance so if you see a weed pull it out! Thanks to the diggers and planters, and Tasteful Plants for the plants.

    Gardening is definitely my own passion simply because it seriously aids me to enjoy and unwind. I love to grow flowers both indoors and outside the house. My preferred plants are usually tropical ornamental plants and flowers as well as fruit bearing plants.

    We seem to be in a minority. I always like to have flowers outside the house, it not only enhances the appearance of the property but hopefully brightens up people’s lives as they walk by. However most of my neighbours have very little apart from a car out side their house
