Grow Heathrow, the squatted community garden in Sipson, West London, which occupies land threatened by plans for a third airport runway, was under imminent threat of eviction when we featured the project in KG last April. As we went to press with that issue, they were hoping to hang on long enough to celebrate their fifth anniversary. One year on, they are still there and are planning their sixth anniversary celebrations over the weekend of March 4-6.
They say, “Expect the usual…. cakes, music, dancing, skipped feasts [i.e. made from ‘waste’ food], wellbeing, workshops, off-grid party and mischief… and also the unusual…. non-weddings (open to all), performance art, tree planting and more…” Beyond the anniversary, there’s a programme of talks and workshops planned for the spring, and the site is open to visitors and volunteers every day, 10am-6pm (Sundays 2-6pm).
