A blooming oasis
This joyful scheme has become a great talking point among neighbours. Linda Closier, one of the residents who has lived on Clarkson Row for around 40 years, said: “I think the planters have made our little bit of Camden much nicer, especially with all the works going on opposite for HS2.” For Simon, it’s both the green aspects and people coming together that are important: “Because we live next to the train line, any greening is essential to help with pollution. We all share responsibility for watering the planters, which adds to the sense of community and our pride in the area we live in.”
