Kew Society volunteers extend gardens at Kew Station

Kew Society volunteers working at Kew Gardens station

Kew Society volunteers together with Energy Gardens have worked hard to create a series of terraces to extend the gardens at Kew Station.
Thanks to the super human efforts of the combined team and a local building company who kindly volunteered their services, a load of rubble was removed from the site, wooden sleepers were installed to create terraces and 3 tonnes of soil and well rotted manure were brought in to improve the soil quality and depth.
This will enable the existing Mediterranean border to be extended to the shadier areas near the footbridge. The next step will be to recreate a traditional kitchen garden, as was often typical in stations in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
