This year we have big plans for our Chelsea Fringe event. We want to create a River of Herbs to lead visitors to Surbiton down the High Street and Brighton Road round to our community garden at Balaclava Road. Our plan is to plant our calendula, rosemary, lavender, mint and yarrow out in tree pits and plants.

We’ve had great support from the council and they have provided us with permission to plant up some tree pits on Balaclava Road as a trial to see how it goes as they have concerns about rubbish building up.
