The Premier Inn Hotel Car Park Site

The Premier Inn Hotel Car Park Site

In 2010 the Transition Belsize Food Growing group installed raised beds made from old pallets in the corner of the Premier Inn Hotel car park on Ornan Road (see photos). The site was and is a huge success. A group of local residents maintain it and harvest food from it. Hotel staff are very proud of it. Hotel guests and passersby visit it. Rainwater is collected from a nearby wall to water it. Food waste is recycled through two wormeries and returned to the site as compost. It’s wonderful example of both Transition and permaculture in practice. 

We always need extra hands so please come and join us if you’d like to help out, or to learn about food growing and permaculture, or simply to visit and chat.
