To Make the Wasteland Grow: New eco-village this summer

June 6, 2012

This coming Saturday, 9th June, sees the beginning of an exciting new eco-village project – which starts with a walk from here at Syon Lane all the way to Windsor, camping for one night en route. The aim of the project is simple, and reflects that of the original 17th century Diggers, as this more modern group describe on their website:

Our aim is to start a community on a piece of disused land on the Crown Estate.

We plan to grow our own food, make shelters and live sustainably: to show an alternative to our system of crisis. We call for the right for everyone to be able to use the disused land to live on, free the yoke of debt and rent.

If you share our vision, and you are willing to work to achieve it, we welcome you to join us.

Interested? Here’s all the information you’ll need:

When and where?

The walkers will be gathering at Syon Lane Community Allotment at 11am on Saturday 9th June before moving off at 1pm sharp.

For details of how to get to Syon Lane (including a map), see here.

If you’d prefer to meet up with the walkers at Windsor – or at any point along the route – call or text the numbers below (see ‘How can I find out more?’) on the day for up-to-date information.

What to bring?

Camping equipment

Warm clothing

Mug, bowl, spoon


Seeds/useful equipment (if you have any)

Also see here for the full eco-village wishlist – it would be great if you could help out with any of these items!
