For the past decade, community organisation Abundance London has been running environmental and educational community projects in Chiswick, west London. Harvesting surplus fruit, planting orchards, hedgerows and trees, and encouraging the council to create wildflower spaces. 

Abundance aims to reconnect people with nature and protect it in an urban setting. Abundance uses planting and art to create beautiful spaces on a shoestring budget, run by volunteers, sometimes with permission but sometimes spontaneous guerrilla gardening. 

Several of the team members are also involved in setting up London's first Flower Market for 150 years, as part of a project to green and regenerate the local high street. Join Dr Karen Liebreich for a walk around some of Abundance London's gardens, finishing at the Flower Market where you can stock up with plants and flowers, have a coffee,  enjoy the music and ambience.
