The Edible Bus Stop

 

 

The Edible Bus Stop transforms neglected sites across London’s bus network into valuable community growing spaces. Originating as a guerilla garden project adjacent to a bus stop in South London, we transform once-forgotten spaces into thriving neighbourhood hubs that are celebrated by local residents and users of the bus route.

The Edible Bus Stop germinated from the need for green space within our cities and urban communities. We understand that a brutal landscape makes for a brutal outlook. Therefore, we explore high-end aesthetics at lower-end budgets to create garden designs that promote harmonious community growing spaces, demonstrating that good food and good design is not socially exclusive.

Our objective is to create a network of gardens whereby skills and resources are shared via our Edible Bus Stop umbrella organization. We work closely with communities to provide them with the necessary framework to utilise neglected public spaces in a productive fashion while incorporating the principals of design to raise their profile. To ensure the longevity of this project, we seek committed sponsors to take the concept across London and the United Kingdom.

About Juliette

When Juliette was little, she came home from school and asked her mum in her little teary voice why the other kids at school didn’t like her. Her mum reassured her and said 'Don't worry Juliette, you're just different. That's all.' Since then, aware of her obvious difference to everyone else, Juliette is spending her time doing exactly what people wish to be doing – exactly what she wants. This blog is a celebration of taking a deep breath and just doing it. Currently Juliette can be found sipping tea and gardening somewhere in Central Victoria, Australia with her beloved and their excitable boys. She is also completing her PhD in Civic Agriculture and teaches at RMIT in Sustainable Consumption and Design Activism.
