Chelsea Fringe

Much the same as the Edinburgh Fringe, the Chelsea Fringe has sprung up from the Chelsea Flower Show to create a grassroots movement encompassing all of London.

"The Fringe is a brand new initiative, entirely volunteer-run in its first year. It’s all about harnessing and spreading some of the excitement and energy that fizzes around gardens and gardening. The idea is to give people the freedom and opportunity to express themselves through the medium of plants and gardens, to open up possibilities and to allow full participation.........  It will range from grassroots community garden projects to avant-garde art installations. Our open-access principle means that just about anything goes – as long as it’s interesting and on the subject of gardens, flowers, veg-growing or landscape."

I'm a little late with this as it started on the 19th June, but it is running for 3 weeks so there is still time to see it if you're in the area.

My favourite idea so far is from the photo to the left, seed bomb making at the DIY allotment. Kids will love it.
