ARCHIVE: The Tale of a Radical Greenhouse

Next week the Transition initiative, GrowHeathrow, go back to court to defend their "Squatopia" in the village of Sipson. Here is a video about how the group converted a derelict site into a community garden and meeting place, by Dean Puckett, director of 2012's year's key documentary, The Crisis of Civilisation (wait ten seconds for video to appear!)

On March 1st 2010 I had the pleasure of filming Transition Heathrow members swoop on an abandoned market garden site in Sipson; one of the villages to be completely tarmacced to make way for a third runway at Heathrow.

2 years later I returned to the site which has been transformed from a derelict mess into a beacon of community strength and a great example of how to live sustainably on this planet.

Keep Grow Heathrow Alive!!

Grow Heathrow is under threat of eviction and will be appearing at Central London County Court on 18th & 19th June 2012
